Passengers traveling with Reykjavík bus number 11 last Friday night were surprised when the driver drove off from Mjódd bus terminal reading from his tablet without looking up during the 1.6 km (1 mile) journey to Sprengisandur down Breiðholtsbraut, a major road, visir.is reports. 

One passenger posted the picture he took on the bus company’s Facebook page.

Kolbeinn Óttarsson Proppé, spokesperson for the bus company, told ruv.is: “We are very sorry about the incident. It breaks all our rules, passengers’ safety is the most important. This is unacceptable behavior.”
