    Good morning. It’s 5.40 am, and I’m at the bus stop for bus 8 at saw river mill road intending to take the route toward mt st vincent, I’m going to work in brooklin, and what does the bus driver do? He passes in front of me and goes straight ahead as if there’s no one at the stop. That’s an abuse and a flagrant disrespect to a person. Please identify him and punish him because this treatment to us riders has to stop!
