Rash Of Bus Driver DWI’s Continue In NJ

Flickr User Born1945

Another New Jersey school bus driver has been charged with drunk driving.

Police say 53 year old Lori Ann Aceta of Monmouth Junction ran her school bus off the road in East Brunswick, and hit a tree. The bus was empty at the time of the accident, and it is not clear if Aceta was on her way to pick up students.

Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. This is the second time in a week a school bus driver has been charged with drunk driving.

Last week, kids aboard a bus in Westhampton used their cell phones to call their parents to tell them the driver was weaving and falling asleep behind the wheel. When police pulled the bus over, they say 46 year old Carole Crockett had a blood alcohol level three times the legal limit.

One of the scariest drunk school bus driver stories happened back in May. Police saw a bus swerve wildly in Bloomfield. Essex County Sheriff Armando Fontoura said what police found when they pulled the bus over “truly frightening.” Officers say they found 62 year old driver Elizabeth Anaya behind the wheel of the bus, with a half empty can of beer in her lap, and an empty bottle of rum in her jacket. She was on her way to pick up disabled kids in Montclair.

New Jersey has some of the toughest mechanical inspection laws in the nation. All school bus drivers must undergo rigorous background checks and reviews of their driving records before they are hired.
