View Full Version : Head/Cellphones and TriMet Drivers

11-25-2007, 09:10 AM
Since I got here in '99' I've been riding TriMet.

I've noticed that MANY of the drivers use headphones... I also have watched one driver on a "Baby.. Baby... phone arguement" that lasted from Beaverton Transit to Tigard Transit (route 76). I wanted to grab the phone out of his hand and tell "Baby" that I was calling the police. I did call and complain. http://forums.mtbr.com/images/smilies/mad5.gif

How many of these near misses from TriMet busses were caused by driver distraction while they are "zoning" I wonder? :confused:

Please Report headphone/cellphone using drivers, It's against their rules, and the life you save could be *MINE*!

Things that you should have to make the report:
Route number,
Bus number,
Physical description (gender, race, hair color/length, body mass, Using glasses, etc),
Describe the color of the phone, or location of the headphone (typically left ear, single ear bud),
Take a pic if you can

TriMet's Phone: (503) 238 RIDE (7433)
