The Department of Homeland Security has a new idea to keep all of us safe and secure. They want enlist school bus drivers in the war on terror.
School bus drivers around the country are being trained to be the eyes and ears on the road and to watch for potential terrorists, in a program financed by the Homeland Security Department.
Designers of the program, called School Bus Watch, want to turn 600,000 drivers into an army of observers.
Has anyone at the department ridden a school bus in the past forty years? I imagine that most drivers have quite enough to keep an eye on inside their vehicles.
