That must be the reason Gatineau’s bus drivers want an all out ban on shooting video of their members.
The union has said a You Tube video, which captured a bus driver driving with his knees while doing paperwork, was a violation of the man’s rights.
Are you friggin’ kidding me?
If I were a passenger on that bus, I would have gone up and bitch slapped the guy. Or called 9-1-1.
Maybe it’s not illegal to drive with your knees in Quebec while filling in your time sheet, but it’s damned well dangerous. The guy was barely looking at the road.
The bus drivers should apologize to their riders, not defend the moron.
Buses carry precious cargo. They aren’t bumper cars.
Remember the Cider House Rules?
There should be rules pasted in all buses:
- No smoking
- No drinking
- No fornicating
- No engaging in distracted behavior of any kind
- No driving with your knees
- No sleeping
- Keep your eyes on the road at all times
In the meantime, it should be the job of every passenger to use whatever means possible to keep alive while travelling in a Gatineau bus — including making a citizen’s arrest.
What a bunch of maroons.
