Yes, a TriMet bus driver — Line 96 traveling from Bridgeport Village to downtown Portland — was actually caught red-handed “on video by a passenger, reading a Kindle while driving down I-5 Thursday.” Once the company received word of this, the driver was immediately suspended. Video of the incident after the break.

The passenger, who wished to remain anonymous, recorded about 60 seconds of video as the bus ran along the Terwilliger Curves. The passenger said the driver appeared to be reading all the way through the curves and into downtown.
