WASHINGTON — A Metrobus driver is on suspension for reading a newspaper while driving the bus after a passenger recorded the incident and posted it on social media.
The passenger, Myles Hill, a University of Maryland student, posted the video on Twitter after noticing the driver on the F6 route appeared to be holding a newspaper as he navigated the bus from College Park toward New Carrollton.
Stessel said Metro appreciated the rider bringing the safety concern to the agency’s attention: “What is shown in the video is obviously disturbing and completely unacceptable.”
