Bus driver caught reading Kindle while driving
September 22nd 2010, Autos

A Portland bus driver was caught on video reading from his Kindle while driving.

A passenger on the bus filmed the incident, showing the driver reaching down to turn the page and even resting his elbow on the steering wheel for a better view.

We’re not sure what he was reading, but it must’ve been a great book to make it worth risking his job and the passengers’ safety.

In Portland, Oregon it is illegal to use “cell phones or other electronic devices” while driving.

No word yet on the bus driver’s current employment status, but we imagine it’s not looking good.

Nah, he was probably brushing up on the local traffic code; mighty suspenseful reading if ya ask me. Give him a break! I mean one of those really really really really long breaks from work…without pay…
