Amazon Kindle: Bus Driver Caught Reading

We are warned of the dangers of drink driving, using our mobile phones and sleeping at the wheel. But now a bus driver in Portland, Oregon has been caught on film using his “Amazon Kindle“. A report from “The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration” indicated that last year, of the 5,500 American people that died, accidents had occurred due to being distracted.

Following on from these statistics, new regulations were brought in to emphasize the dangers behind the wheel. According to Autoblog, truck and bus drivers are banned from using their cell phones or any other electronic device while driving.

The bus driver that was recently pictured tapping away on his electronic Kindle was seen turning the page, and then moving towards the device to get a good look at, what was described, as a good read!
