Sorry Kids! Bug Infested Driver’s Ed Car Cancels Classes at New York School
Kids are going to have to wait to get behind the wheel at one New York school. Bugs forced one district to cancel their driver's ed program.
A letter was sent home to parents in the Clarence High School district, near Buffalo. Superintendent Geoffrey Hicks said students complained of bugs in one of the cars last semester. "The district asked the company to take immediate corrective action including cleaning the vehicles, changing the vehicles out, and ongoing monitoring," he wrote.
Hicks told WGRZ, "we received another report of a bug sighting this semester."
O'Days Driving School was the only company that could provide instruction in the morning, according to WGRZ. "We have exhausted out options and for the health and well being of our students we have no choice but to cancel the community driver education program for this semester," Hicks wrote.
The company told WGRZ they've never had complaints about bugs in any of their cars before.
Parents will be given a full refund and the district is working to find a new company for the summer driver's ed program.
The letter didn't confirm what type of bug it was, but WGRZ says one parent claimed they were bed bugs during a school board meeting.
Gives new meaning to driving at a crawl.
