Bus Driver, School in Navarre:
"Safety Should Be Paramount."
Pros: The very low pay keeping me at or below poverty level so I don't have the problem of paying high taxes.
Cons: The transportation fleet is in dire need of repair. The roof on almost every bus leaks above the drivers seat dripping on our arms and legs. Some drivers joke about using shower curtains to keep dry. How safe is that? Very seldom are there sufficient parts available to keep the fleet up to full working capacity. This means doubling up on routes at times to accomplish the task of getting all the children to school. Strange routes, strange drivers and conflicting schedules equals confusion and disarray among both students and drivers. This combination has contributed to very horrendous results in the past.
