The original title of this post was going to be "Why bus drivers don't text or sleep behind the wheel," but, as an article in today's Examiner seems to show, they apparently sometimes read while in the driver's seat. While they probably shouldn't be reading on the job, you'd have to be completely insane to read while the bus was moving. You'd think the same principle would apply on trains though.
As this video shows, there appear to be fewer dull moments on a bus. Hard to blame the guy for getting a little angry.
