A school bus driver in St. Charles County caught texting while driving is now out of work.
Officials with the Francis Howell School District tell the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that a middle-school student had taken a video of the driver texting with kids on board Thursday. Parents contacted the district about the incident.
Francis Howell spokeswoman Jennifer Henry tells the paper that the company the driver worked for fired the driver as a result of the incident.
The driver isn't likely to face a citation since Missouri law only bars texting while driving for drivers age 21 and under.
Missouri law currently bans drivers under 21 from texting while driving, but not those who are older. Democratic State Rep. Michele Kratky has introduced a bill that would change that.
Kratky says that looking down to send a text message is unsafe for drivers of all ages
"It's almost like having a blindfold on while you're driving," Kratky said. "And I don't think that's very safe for the citizens of the state of Missouri."
Kratky's bill, HB 394, would allow for hand free texting.
Only 11 states still allow at least some drivers to text and drive.
