Bus driver caught driving while eating sundae
CHICAGO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Chicago bus driver is feeling the fallout after getting caught on camera using his hands to eat an ice cream sundae instead of drive while making his rounds.
A concerned passenger hit record because she felt unsafe.
The bus driver was constantly taking his hands of the wheel to eat ice cream and even used his knee to steer.
"The bus was jerking back and forth. Hard brake, go a little, hard brake, go a little bit. Hard brake, go a little bit, said Risa Lopez, who shot the video.
The Chicago Transit Authority issued a response to the incident, saying quote, "any reports of operators engaging in unsafe behavior that can be a distraction while operating a vehicle --such as eating, drinking or reading - are taken very seriously and will be investigated to the fullest extent."
