Bus driver wees on his own bus

August 30th, 2013 12 Comments By Lucy Sweet

It’s Friday, so let’s all watch a video of a bus driver urinating! Yes, the anonymous Arriva employee – who by the end of the day will probably be a highly-paid celebrity eating kangaroo eyeballs in the jungle with Brian Capron – was caught short and on camera, weeing on his own bus.


Passer-by Johnson Rotimi, 24, was walking down the street when he saw the driver of the empty W3 bus in Hornsey, North London doing a piddle.

‘I was shocked. I’ve never seen anything like it.’ Said Johnson.

(REALLY? NOT EVEN WHEN YOU GO TO THE TOILET?)

He was so SHOCKED he started taking copious smartphone footage of the driver without his permission, and then went to great lengths to sell it to the newspapers. The footage shows the driver zipping up his flies and – quite understandably – giving Johnson the middle finger.

While it’s not cool to pee on your own bus, (or take videos of random people and sell them to the papers), it does make you wonder whether the driver was in a desperate situation and had no other option. However, Arriva was not happy.

‘This is not the sort of behaviour we expect from our drivers. A copy of the video will be passed to the management team in order to identify the driver and take the necessary action.’

Like give him a bucket? Or a scheduled toilet break?

    bus driver was in a public place and has no expectation of privacy hence the smartphone wielding photographer does not need the drivers consent to take photographs. Do not perpetuate the myth that photography is illegal without consent.

    Video does not really show anything, all you see is him doing up his flies.

    @ klingelton, could be Data Protection issues (were the images processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act?). Could be harassment. Could be defamation (no, not defecation). Lots of potential laws that would cover this other than a right to privacy.

    no there are no issues, its a public place you can film or photograph.

    The video proves……….. fuck all. Do you see him urinating? No.

    @james – There are no laws about how you process the images? There are no laws about publishing stories on people without seeking their side?

    @wordhilter

    data protection doesn’t apply because no data is being collected here, exif data is exempt.

    harassment usually entails some kind of personal security issue.

    defamation has to be fictitious, this hasn’t been re-cut to show something that isn’t the case.

    as was already said privacy is not granted in public, a bus is a public place.

    processing the image? please elaborate on how this can be construed as an illegality.

    there are no laws about seeking all sides of a story, but if it can be proved that something has been presented as fact is not true then damages can be claimed if they caused harm.

    @Ollie

    cheers.

    @Grammar Nazi

    you’re one of those twats who seeks to remove our liberties by using law that doesn’t apply to the situation. Kindy, do one.

    Guy being filmed looks as thick as a pail full o’ shite. Typical bus driver really.

    yet again lucy has written a shoddy article trying to say the person who filmed this is in the wrong oh dear… maybe its time to get down the job centre lucy

  12. I suggest you all read up on the law. Taking someone’s picture without their permission is an offence. It is called ”stealing someone’s image”. That’s why CCTV has to have notices making people aware that they are being filmed
