There are plenty of things parents worry about when they send their kids off to school each day. But intoxicated bus drivers usually isn't very high on the list.
That might change after a rash of bus driver DUI arrests have made news lately. The most recent case involved 36-year-old Connecticut bus driver Melissa Forrest. She was charged with DUI after rear-ending another vehicle. This happened shortly after police received calls about a bus driver that was driving erratically. Police say she failed a field sobriety test following the crash.
So Raising America asked our panel, how safe is your child on the school bus? New York Senator George Maziarz joined the conversation and made a bold suggestion. He talked about his bill - introduced into the New York state senate - that would require all buses made after 2015 be equipped with breathalyzers.
