NOTE: Many of these alerts were written by dispatchers who are not expected to be language experts, may not have time to proofread, and make mistakes like all humans. They may have many other tasks in progress at the moment, such as dealing with buses that are already stuck due to the blockage or situations elsewhere. While the errors probably should be forgiven, they can cause confusion or problems for those who try to follow them.
