In any even they allow retirees to get some material without charge, its the usual useless crap, you know the Hooray for us material. But today they sent some material which is just too coincidental to be ignored.

Earlier this month TriMet Executive Director of Operations Shelly Lomax sent a memo out to all bus and rail operators reinforcing the concerns of distracted driving and stressing that operators must put rider safety first. This is a reminder for the entire workforce to put safety first. Using a phone or other personal electronic device while driving violates Oregon law and TriMet policy, and it is dangerous. Operators are allowed to have cell phones and other electronic devices with them during their working day that they can use before or after their shifts or while on a break. However, they must not use them when in the driver’s seat of the bus or in the operating cab of a train whether in motion or not. Employees are instructed that electronic devices must be turned off and stowed at all times when operating a TriMet vehicle.
