We have mass amounts of respect for the STM's many bus drivers, we really do, because they get us where we need to be on the daily, regardless of the weather. But while there are many stellar public transit drivers in Montreal, some are not quite "model employees."

You've seen it before, a driver texting or talking on the phone while driving, making you feel all uneasy that they have your life in their hands, and you wish you could report them or something. Montreal's Personal Safety Examiner Dave Lowe from Examiner.com decided to go the extra mile and record some of these STM bus driver infractions, which you can see in the video below.

Described as a "trailer" for a longer video, the "Montreal Dangerous Bus Drivers" one and a half minute clip documents drivers going right past stop signs and texting while holding the wheel, both of which are far from comforting. See for yourself below. If you've seen this happen before, sound off in the comments below.
