  • that is irresponsible behaviour and very reckless


  • Unbelievable, this is truely shocking.


  • I wonder just how many times this has happened?


  • I’m so glad the police stopped him before he picked up the kids.


  • Oh wow! Thankfully he didn’t have a bus full of kids, but how many times has he done this before? It’s probably alot more common than we think. Maybe all drivers should be tested before their shifts!!


  • A Father today in Melbourne blew 3 times the legal limit. At School drop off time….


  • gosh, I bet it is more common than we realise!


  • Hope this guy loses his job and his bus licence. What was he thinking?


  • This is so scary. This man is responsible for these children and he has put them in a lot of danger.


  • Scary. You put your child’s life into these peoples hands you expect them to take this responsibility highly.


  • So irresponsible! I’m glad he was caught before he picked up the kids!


  • So sad reading this kind of thing – as parents we have to trust those responsible for our kids. This is not ok. Glad he was caught!


  • For goodness sake. He has even less excuse than the average person.

    • Exactly, they know the rules, especially when driving buses. They should have to have 0 reading. They are driving a large vehicle with a large number of people and don’t have seatbelts either.
