Greyhound's new slogan could be "leave the texting while driving to us"
One driver who managed to escape the eyes of the cops was behind the wheels of a Greyhound passenger bus. While driving the bus and having the responsibility of getting his passengers to their destinations safely, the driver uses his handset to text, take pictures, and play games while the bus was "gently swerving over the white lines". For a company whose slogan is "Relax and leave the driving to us," this video does not look good.
The passenger who recorded the video, noted that he watched the driver using his phone while driving for at least 10 minutes before recording the activity, and before that he had been asleep. Thus, there is no way of knowing just how long the driver had used his phone while his concentration should have been on the road. For its part, a spokesperson for Greyhound, Bonnie Bastian, says the company has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to driving while using a phone. An investigation is currently under way.
