A National Express bus driver from Birmingham has been exposed by a passenger to read a book whilst driving.
The passenger filmed the driver holding a small book which meant him steering with his elbows.
National Express was of course extremely concerned and took immediate action, suspending the driver who now faces disciplinary action.
They said “Passenger safety is always our priority and it is completely unacceptable for any driver to behave in this manager.”
Road safety campaigners are concerned that somebody like a bus driver who is responsible for the safety of so many passengers could behave in this way. Reading any material, even a map whilst driving is illegal and dangerous and whether you drive for a living or as an individual, distractions need to be kept at bay.
