I have came to learn that the SUMMERS COUNTY BUS DRIVER (44) has a habit of texting while driving with the children on the bus. Has any other parents heard this info or anything else concerning this driver?

I would call the board of education and see if it is true and have them look into it. It is against the law to do so and he could have his lic. suspended. So, they need to do an investigation and find out what is going on.

You are not acting like an adult by posting this on Topix. If you really had concerns you would call the Board of Ed. If these accusations are false, this would be a bad thing to do to a man's reputation.

So i know it's not ok for a bus driver to drive and text but maybe you should thank before you post. How many times have you drove and texted with your kids in the car? Maybe you need to thank of this. And don't say you don't. Every one does it from time to time.

I can say I don't ! Because that would be impossible ,my phone doesn't text and I don't want a phone that does ! I use mine for talking , new concept for you isn't it !

If you have a problem with denny's way of doing things step up on the bus and confront him and just simply tell him you have seen him do this and would no longer like for it to continue. After doing so if it hasn't stopped then just simply go to the board of education. Denny is a nice guy and is easy to get along with I have known him my whole life. You shouldn't have posted this on topix but since you have there is your solution. It's not brain surgery your just a bust body!

Basically its against the law to text and drive now. As well as talking on the phone while driving (unless its hands free speaker phone). They just past it. You say your not one for causing "trouble" but here you are talking about it and doing nothing. Either takes steps to make it safe for your kids or go along with someone putting them in danger. Its as simple as that. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

This does not start until 7-1-2012

A special House-Senate committee reached a compromise over Tomblinís bid to deter texting and hand-held cellphone use while driving. The final bill will phase in the ban on using a cellphone while driving. Beginning this summer, the violation would be a secondary offense. Next summer, violating the hand-held cellphone ban would be a primary offense and drivers could be stopped.

Lawmakers also adjusted the fines and a third violation of the texting and cellphone bans would cost drivers $300 and add three penalty points to their license.

who cares about a fines amount its a safty issue, children's lives are at stake. This driver should be fired before he gets someone killed. I think it's against the schoolboards rules.

Does anyone stop to remember that EVERYONE is innocent until proven guilty???? The buses are equipped with cameras in every county now and the board has the right to examine the cameras and to request phone records if they choose. If it has not been proven that this driver has done anything wrong then all this conversation is just defamation of character. You should all be ashamed. If I have a problem, I take it to the source, not to some social gossip and slander website.

>>rights-Amen. I wish people would think of that more often before they jump on someone's 'bashing' bandwagon. I think that some people just agree and add to negative comments about someone, just to see how far it will go.

I have texted while driving and looked up as i was about to go out of the road it is very dangerous for anyone to do so and i will not do it again . I hope if this is so about that driver that he will not be made an example of but that he will be given a chance to change his driving habits, maybe attend some driving classes , suspended without pay but dont ruin his life by taking his job and his liscense . very easy to monitor him daily or wekly with the cameras on bus I know how easy it is to preach to my teens and other family members DO NOT DRIVE AND TEXT OR TALK ON PHONE and yet I have done it .As for others if you suspect something that is not right going on with yur childs welfare . PLEASE TAKE IT TO THE RIGHT PERSON TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE DONT CALL NAMES ON A PUBLIC SITE TO RUIN SOMEONE LIFE . bELIEVE ME MRS HINNERMAN , THE BUS SUPERVISOR , THE PRINCIPALS IN THE SCHOOL WILL TAKE CARE OF YOUR ISSUES IF NOT THEN GO FOR THE TOPIX .

Those allegations were proven false & he was reinstated. Perhaps people should think before affecting someone's family by posting false allegations on a social website that put him out of work.
You were proven wrong but still affected his family. Think before you speak or don't speak at all if you're that stupid.

I hate that the driver was out of work. In these times, even one unexpected day without work can cause a strain on the wallet.

The buses all have cameras on them. Ask that the video be reviewed. If it is happening, then it does need to be stopped. If not, the video will clear him. Simple as that.

So stupid to tell someone to "step up on that bus and confront the bus driver". Hate to tell you, but you'll end up arrested if you do. That is trespassing. Besides that, by confronting him in the process of transporting students, you'll be in big trouble. Now, should you wish to call him, just dial the bus garage.
