    There’s too little context in this photo to determine is there is in fact any risk at all. There is a tractor trailer unit pulling out to pass the bus, shot from what appears to be the rear window of the leading vehicle. In that circumstance, the only concern is whether or not the semi is going to try to cut in between the two or cut off the lead vehicle.

    Now if the picture taking vehicle were clearly traveling the opposite direction, that would be a clear and present danger.

    Take a look at the bus driver and what side they are sitting in. This is clearly the bus passing the truck and you are looking out the front window at the on-coming bus.

    Yes, it is a UK road, the double white lines mean that there is no passing. The photo appears to have been taken through the windscreen of another vehicle, heading towards the bus. It is a poor quality photo, so no idea if it was taken at speed or any other circumstances around it. They say a picture speaks a thousand words, but in this case most of them are questions.
