Traffic hold-up due to snow?

We all came to a grinding halt in Bridge Street just, fortunately the roads were clear as stopping on such a slope when icy would not be a good idea. So what caused this delay was it snow, did someone slip, did something slip?

Nope it was the bus-stop and as I've said many a time before the brain-dead decision to create a pull-in stop that doesn't accommodate an actual bus. This wouldn't be so bad except you often get another bus blocking the lane behind it and add in the car parked outside Lloyds Pharmacy and the delivery van parked opposite the Wheatsheaf nothing moves until someone, well, moves.
