Drunk School Bus Driver Needs More Than a Wisconsin DUI Class

by: Mike Miller

How would you feel if the school bus driver of your children was arrested for a driving under the influence (DUI) violation? How would you feel if that happened immediately after dropping your child off? You can guaranty there is some parental-rage going on in Wisconsin right now.

Margaret Means, the school bus driver, tested a .17 BAC during a breath test after losing control of the 1990 International school bus she was driving. That is more than twice the legal limit! As reported in www.wistv.com.

On the day she was arrested, Means had completed a portion of her route, dropping 151 students off at an elementary school, a middle school, and a high school, just before the crash happened. There were no students on the bus at the time of the accident.

The incident happened Friday around 9:10 a.m. Do you think she has an alcohol problem?

Of course the 61-year-old Means decided to lie to South Carolina Troopers who arrested her. She claimed to have consumed a liter of wine the night before, but had not consumed any alcohol that morning. Of course police noticed Means smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes, and appeared to be unsteady on her feet.

In addition to DUI, she was charged with child endangerment.

That is absolutely disgraceful. I hope she gets sober with a good alcohol class and never is allowed to operate a school bus again.
