Today on the bus I noticed that the driver was being pretty risky and I didn't feel too safe. First off, he didn't buckle his seat belt and I tried to look past what may seem like a minor detail, but couldn't. Second, while we were driving, he pulled out his blackberry and proceeded to text. Now we were on a straight away but still! You do not text while you are driving and you do not text while you are driving a bus. Driving a bus with one hand is just bad. And finally, while we were on said straight away, he tried to adjust the bandaid on his finger. To do this, he didn't reach across and keep one hand on the steering wheel. Instead, he took both hands off and continued to drive. Despite these issues, I remained calm and said nothing. I just watched the road like a hawk.
