DOVER, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A New Jersey bus driver will be suspended after being caught on video engaging in potentially dangerous behavior.

The driver appeared in the video to be texting while driving with passengers on board.

A sign on the bus clearly states that cell phone use is prohibited.

CBS 2 confirmed the driver is with the Lakeland Bus Line out of Dover, New Jersey.

The bus drivers say the company warns them about using cell phones.

“If you got a text, pull over or wait till you get to the last stop, you get a break,” one driver said.

“He should have pulled over. It would’ve been safer for all the customers,” another driver added.
