Frightening Video



It was a school bus trip nightmare for students in upstate New York.

A driver is heading to jail after she was drunk behind the wheel with more than three dozen kids aboard.

And as a surveillance video shows, the children were screaming for her to stop.

The video shows the dangerous school bus ride last May in the Alfred-Almond school district in Allegany County. Martha Thompson, 55, had a blood alcohol content of .15. At the time, she thought the children were over-reacting.

Incredible that school buses still don't have seat belts.

I thought I saw seat belts in the video - beige in color. Of course, kids are not wearing them.

Thanks, now I see them, it's a lack of discipline. I see a lot of school kids on city buses that have no seat belts except for wheelchairs; standard procedure is to move toward the door while the bus is moving or miss getting off at your stop because the bus is crowded.

Maybe earlier in the trip, but I only count about 10.

Anyone catch the kid saying "I can't hold it any longer!"?

Made me look again.
I was thinking maybe she made more than one bus run, that's how they did it when I was a kid.

From what I could see... not a lot of 'action'... just backing up without looking...

Did she hit anything? Anybody hurt? Not that I can see from the video...

Thought I would see kids being thrown around or her hitting the curbs etc...
