"Do Not operate heavy equipment" is a phrase accompanying meds, but it should also include "do not drive school busses"

Anti Anxiety meds... and all the headlines are possibly misleading, about her driving drunk instead... consider the world we live in and figure it's a mix of the both, but that's what happens when the news is rewarded for ratings instead of honesty and accuracy.

Catherine Maccarone, 48, a Washington state bus driver for the Longview School District was arrested earlier this month and accused of driving drunk with a bus full of children — and her alleged erratic behavior was captured in a newly released video that shows the kids screaming, after a 10-year-old student who she'd just dropped off called 911 to report "she was drunk."

When police officers pulled the bus over, they "smelled an obvious odor of intoxicants coming from Maccarone," according to the police statement. She was then arrested for driving under the influence and reckless endangerment. Her bac was 0.09

The school district states that they have now implemented a new daily screening procedure for bus drivers prior to them beginning their routes.

Why haven't they simply installed breathalyzers on all govt vehicles?
