Bus Driver Caught Reading Kindle


More people are adopting eReaders these days, including bus drivers. In this video, a bus driver in Portland, OR is caught reading his Kindle while he is slowly driving through traffic.

While we love to see people reading on their Kindles, this has got to be as bad as texting and driving.

The Guardian UK has more: “The driver was filmed by a passenger seemingly reading while driving on the city’s I-5 road through rush hour. At one point he used his elbow to steer the bus while looking down at his Kindle, which was placed behind the wheel.”

The incident is being investigated and the driver is now on leave, possibly leaving him more time to catch up on his reading.
