RTA Uppercut Incident Sparks Cleveland Bus Conduct Law
RTA to ask its board of trustees for $2 million to install cameras on all buses
The Cleveland City Council will introduce a bill Monday intended to protect Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority bus drivers in light of a viral video of a bus driver uppercutting a passenger last year.
NewsNet5 reports that Councilman Kevin Conwell will introduce the bill Monday prohibiting eating and drinking, listening to music without headphones and spitting on others, and making hitting a driver illegal.
The RTA will ask its board of trustees for $2 million to install cameras on every bus, NewsNet5 adds.
