The Texting Bus Driver From Texas

The Ontario Government is on the verge of banning cell phone use while driving. Check out the following video to find out why texting behind the wheel is a bad idea.

The driver and two disabled bus passengers were uninjured, but the woman driving the SUV never saw the bus coming and suffered neck and back injuries.

This would be a good opportunity for DRT and every other transit authority to grab this video and incorporate it into the driver-training program.

Next time I see a TTC driver texting, I'm going to ask him to stop.

25 killed last Sept. 2008 in Los Angeles commuter train head on collision. It's alleged the engineer had been texting before the crash. http://cbs5.com/local/Metrolink.Crash.investigation.2.817275.html
