Another suburban school-bus driver busted for DUI

Former Bensalem Township school bus driver Kim Townsend was arrested today for crashing her bus, allegedly with a blood-alcohol content of .19, according to Daily News reporter Phillip Lucas.

Townsend's BAC was more than twice the legal limit.

But she was practically sober compared to Wallingford-Swarthmore School District bus driver Christine Rogers, who recently pleaded guilty in Media to driving with a BAC  of .374. She had a water bottle full of vodka, police say.

Those are practically background levels of booze compared to Christian M. Sweeney, who pleaded guilty a few months ago to driving with an astronomically high blood-alcohol content of .62 – nearly eight times the legal limit and drunker than Townsend and Rogers combined.

That is ridiculously drunk. I don't know how he found his car, let alone drove it. As a motorcyclist, people like this scare the hell out of me.

And careless texters. They can be lethal.
