State arbitrators recently restored the job of a bus driver who brandished an ice scraper to defend himself from a menacing passenger. But that doesn’t mean every bus driver wins their case before the Bureau of Mediation Services.
A  Jefferson Lines intercity bus driver was behind the wheel for only a year. In that time he managed to rack up three preventable accidents, tried to cut a business deal with a convenience store and left as many as eight passengers stranded at bus depots along his routes. Steve Law was fired in March and lost his appeal in October, according to the bureau’s ruling.
According to the arbitrator, Law justified his three accidents that cost the company several thousand dollars by pointing out “well, the company has insurance.”
