Zero Tolerance

Nov. 11. From SNACKMANIAC. "Eastbound G2, @wmata bus #2147, driver playing video game on smart phone while driving around Dupont Circle IN THE RAIN. He was gaming/txting from GU to 16th & P when I got off. Am going to file a formal complaint. That's how people get run over."

Unbelievable. Dupont Circle is one the most dangerous places for pedestrians in the city as it is.

I do not understand these drivers. Do they just not care if they kill someone or are they so immature they really believe (like teenagers) that "it'll never happen to me!?" And the union does nothing! It gives me the impression the time for unions is over. This driver should be fired.

Ok, I get that sometimes people do things that are against company policy. Hell I'm doing it right now by being on the internet, but and it's a big but, don't do things that are a firable offense! And put lives in danger! If you want to break a rule, make it one that won't get you fired or kill/maim someone. break dress code or something.
