WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA (CBS 12) – Two recent violent attacks on Palm Tran have bus drivers worried.
They say barriers need to be installed on buses to separate drivers from unruly, violent passengers.
When Palm Tran bus drivers get behind the wheel, they sometimes encounter violent passengers.
In one incident in July, a female Palm Tran driver was hit by a passenger with a receiver from a radio.
Another incident in May cost a Palm Tran bus driver his job.
The incident, which was caught on bus surveillance cameras, happened on a Palm Tran bus on a Sunday afternoon May 13. It began as a dispute over the bus fare.
There were only a handful of people on the bus, including a passenger who was very loud.
