The MARTA train operator who was caught texting and driving by a concerned twitterer (who captured the moment via the TwitPic above) *cough* <it wasn’t me!> has been suspended for three days (with pay?):
A MARTA suspended a rail conductor caught texting recently while at the controls of a train.
The conductor will be off the job for three days, the maximum penalty MARTA can impose, according to transit officials.
A MARTA rider posted photos on Twitter of the conductor text messaging while operating a train.
MARTA officials said they are reviewing current policies on texting in light of similar problems that caused serious crashes in other cities.
Safety on the train is a big deal….but so is twitter. Don’t sleep on it! No one is safe from the tweets. 😆
