The timing could not be worse for Metro to have additional problems. Drivers of Metrobuses have been arrested for kidnapping a passenger and driving on a suspended license. The much ballyhooed zero tolerance policy instituted by Metro apparently has not altered the Metro culture very much.

The Washington Post also reports suspensions for sleeping, talking on cellphones, and reading while on the job. What is particularly disturbing is that investigators would likely have a difficult time ascertaining whether a crash was attributable to one of these distractions after the fact.

Public vigilance has brought most of these incidents to light and it does leave one wondering whether Metro can police itself.
