School Bus Driver Suspended For Taking A Phone Call With No Students Aboard, Fair? [POLL]
A school bus driver from Broward County, Florida was suspended when video footage surfaced of her taking a phone call while driving the bus. Rossana Lucas, the driver, is appealing, saying the caller was her son, a Marine in Afghanistan.
According to Yahoo News
In addition to the phone call being from her son, when Lucas took the call, there were no children on the bus, and she was only a couple of blocks away from the parking lot. Lucas said she had no time to call dispatch in order to get permission to take the call, because the phone was already ringing. Lucas said that her son had called just before Christmas to let her know that he was OK and to wish her a happy birthday. Her birthday is Dec. 10.
The school board has scheduled another hearing for Rossana on April 9th. How do you feel? Was it fair? Sign in and take the poll.
