    It's really heart warming and reassuring that possible, likely, probable, and maybe have become the new rule of law and law and order among the minds of government and educators in this state. Being arrested is not a conviction and this driver was unlawfully convicted without a trial and fired without even being questioned. No blood test, no evidenced of wrong doing and a history of good driving record for what? Possibilities?

    Its also possible and likely the administrators and all the rest of the school teachers are hyped up on their Valium, Percocets, and myriad of medications to keep them from going mad in the class rooms and while driving home and working off the stress of working in education. The rest of us driving on the road should feel better now as the administrators and educators all go to their cars and put the lives of tens of thousand of others in harms way on legal drugs that are also illegal drugs behind the wheel of a car.

    It's easy to pass judgment and criticize without fact and even worse when their is no remorse of wrong doing when false witness has been made.

    I drove for Trailways back in the 1980's for a while, and then drove a truck for 23 years. So far as driving and logbook regulations go, things are MUCH tighter now than they were 30 years ago. Bus drivers, in particular, make sure that they are well-rested prior to an all-nighter, not unlike pilots. I remember well, nevertheless, how long those nights could be. I do hope things work out for this young driver, but let's not judge and convict him before we get all the facts.

    Something about driving from Cedar City to Southern Cal at 10 p.m. doesn't sound very safe. Drowsy driving is just as dangerous as DUI.

    Close call, possible tragedy averted. Good job dogs.
