I know I'm wrong for saying this, but if my job consisted of transporting a bunch of little brats to school, then I would be drunk too.
That looks like a DURHAM SCHOOL SERVICES bus. I know here in Texas they will hire anyone to drive their buses.
here in illinois has not much prob with that that happens anywhere in an job and all you need is a drunk person and they get a job and wala!!! its not the company its the people who are corrupt we get ramdoms al;l the time which means you dot know when you gettin it now how she got on the bus unotice that a qusetion
That is definitely not the case in MN. We are very picky. I am hoping that the photo was from stock. The article did not say what company the driver worked for.
Whether she was driving under the influence of alcohol o rprescription medication, she was irresponsible to be driving. She's lucky she only took out a mailbox.
With all those kids raised by substandard parents and single parent homes that's reason enough for any school personel to drink, They shouldn't ever mess with school bus drivers... that's a high stress job
Yeah!! A bus driver gets locked up for DWI and you blame it on the single parents. You must also be an alcoholic. Blaming other people for your drinking problem. Look in the mirror schmuck. People who drink and drive school buses or drink and interact with children while drunk are the problem. Not the single parent who sends their kids to school thinking they are safe with these so called adults driving the bus.
They released her on her own recognizances so she could make it back to the school to take the kids home. (after stopping at the local liquor store for her liquid lunch)
She wont be driving again anytime soon
maybe one of those brats slipped her a mickey
driving on perscription drugs is still driving under the influence. If your driving a school bus you need to be more responsible
Dealing with those badass kids drove her to drink.
We really are not given much information with this story. We are not told if a breathalyzer was even used. We are not told what sort of medication or why she was taking it. We are not told if drug test were done. We are only told that she failed the field sobriety test. And that she was released on her own recognizance. Hopefully not driving. I am glad no one was hurt and that the school children are safe. Maybe there will be a follow up story after she goes to court Nov 14.
