Inga Steinunn Björgvinsdóttir, a concerned citizen, posted a picture on Facebook this weekend of a bus driver who was so mesmerised by his phone that he not only didn’t watch the road, but also missed his stop.

The bus was driving in the Norðlingaholt neighbourhood, where he passed a pedestrian crossing by a school, completely oblivious as to where he was.

“I dare not imagine what would have happened had someone been crossing the street at the time,” Inga wrote.

The driver drove straight past Inga’s stop and it was not until her daughter yelled at him that the two were able to exit the runaway bus.

Fell in love on the bus

Let’s just hope the bus driver was doing something fun, like looking for love on Tinder, and not something depressing like reading the latest news about our fucked up system of government.
