How they caught the (allegedly) drink driving ACTION bus driver

May 1st, 2009 at 09:26pm

Earlier this week an ACTION bus driver was allegedly caught drink driving with a blood alcohol level twelve times over the 0.02 limit which applies to bus drivers.

Until now, all that has been known about how he was caught, is that police were called to the scene. I have received information from reliable sources which sheds some light on how this happened.

The driver in question is believed to have been working a “split shift”. He completed his morning shift and left work as normal. Later in the day he returned to work for his afternoon shift, allegedly drunk, not that anyone noticed at the time. The driver was apparently on his way to conduct a school run when, for one reason or another, ACTION’s communication centre attempted to contact him via the two-way radio system and received a slurred, garbled and unintelligible response.

The reaction of the communication centre was that the driver must be having a stroke, and as such they dispatched a supervisor to the scene. The supervisor found the driver in an allegedly drunk state, and called the police. The rest is history and documented the police press release.
