Quoting Mark Burton:
Check her cell phone, if she can't recollect what happened she needs to be off the bus period. Did she pass the drug test after the accident?

I will agree on the needing to be off the bus as you said but Mark, you are not driving either, you quit too and I know you like to start things I am Just suprised that they havent blamed all the Bus Drivers or are you Mark Burton? This needs to be taken care of and hopefully not swept under the rug but needs someone other than you to make a point but it only takes one to ruin the whole pot.

That's right I quit because there is no money in it. I like to start things? That's right but I guess you wasn't there when I was president of KESPA and with Tim Southern we wrote our man contract and got the classified employees what t hey have today. When it comes to driving our kids you need to pay attention tonwhat is going on. I am Mark Burton and proud of it and don't hide like you do Citizen!!

Quoting If u say so:
That's crazy what I can tell she crossed the road and through a guardrail I wonder if she was texting or using a phone period? I bet there is I can tell. No drug test administered like is required and she has a bad driving record y'all say, I'm telling ya its a deal that was done for the reason they wanted to buy another school bus.

Yes They need Buses Badly but You are a Complete Moron if You think that they would put a Drivers Life into danger for a School Bus and I agree she needs to be investigated but not for Cell Phone usage maybe alcohol but not Cell Phones. The Board will not give up any money for buses but to think this is a plan for New buses is completely idiotic and someone just trying to make the Drivers Look bad. Not All the Drivers Agree with what is going on but You have to work and Have a Job to support their families.

Replace this sorry excuse for a school bus driver! She doesn’t need to be transporting our future with accidents like this happening. This isn’t her first “accident”.

The results of the "required" drug test should be made public. Her past driving record should be looked at. How fast was she going. She needs to be replaced with a safer driver.

Makes about 5 accidents she has had. Would let my child ride her bus on outings when she was in high school.

She needs to think about retirement, she’s about 70 and it’s scary to think that she doesn’t remember what happened! The roads wasn’t icy.
