It’s common knowledge that listening to a cellular phone while driving could impair your reflexes, but what about playing a Playstation Portable game? A British bus driver was recently fired for playing Grand Theft Auto while driving a bus filled with dozens of horrified passengers.
According to the Daily Record, the driver held the game in his lap and was caught after passengers tipped off transportation officials. Passengers had complained that the sounds from the game were echoing through the bus and that the driver was concentrating more on the game rather than on the icy roads.
A passenger told the Daily Record, “He was playing a Grand Theft Auto game and the screams of the characters being shot could be heard all around the bus.”
The driver was fired after management reviewed CCTV video footage.
