Leave the Driving to Us

A bus company in Auckland, New Zealand, said that when a passenger complained about a driver, it was just an e-mail and there just wasn’t enough information in it to take action. So apparently the passenger followed up, sending a video taken with his cell phone of the driver at the wheel. As he drove, the Ritchies Coachlines driver was reading the newspaper, which was spread across the steering wheel. “I am absolutely amazed by how absolutely stupid the guy is,” said company owner Andrew Ritchie. “Bloody irresponsible behavior to the first degree. I can’t believe it.” He said the driver’s actions were “negligent at best,” and he “will be dealt with.” (RC/New Zealand Herald) ...What really scared the passengers: the newspaper was printed in Braille.
