    Me and my step son are going to ride the bus into town today from Sudden Valley. He is going to be my videographer, if any unfortunate circumstances happen. I have my cpl, so I should be good to go. I definately need to get a recorder very soon.

    I am not doing this to test, but because of some recent events we are not able to take our car, and we still want to go check out the TEA party.


    After I posted I googled and saw this for WTA (Whatcom Transit Authority)

    Passenger Conduct
    1. Just as we treat you with courtesy, we expect you to treat our Drivers, Customer Service Representatives, Dispatchers and other Riders with consideration. Fighting, throwing things, pushing, shouting, hitting, spitting, and using abusive language are considered serious service disruptions and are not allowed. Abusive language on the telephone is also prohibited. Some disruptions are grounds for immediate suspension of service.

    2. Personal hygiene must meet acceptable standards for the comfort and safety of all.

    3. All riders must comply with safety rules established in Washington State Law (Title 9.91.025) which forbids smoking, eating or drinking, spitting, the playing of radios or other noisy equipment, possession of firearms, weaponry, and hazardous chemicals or acid on public transit vehicles.

    Bold and italics mine.

    Wish me luck.

    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Yep so it looks like WTA needs to change the wording on their rules. I didn't get to ride the bus they are not running today. Oh Well, It looks like it is going to be Monday. And I missed the TEA Party too. I did get a good long walk out of it though.
