Bus Driver Suspended For Letting A Monkey Take The Wheel

It’s always dangerous to be monkeying around when the driving vehicle – but having an actual monkey behind the wheel is a whole new level of risky. It’s no wonder a bus driver got suspended for letting a monkey take the wheel.

The driver was on his bus route in Karnataka state, India, when a monkey came on board with another passenger – which is probably enough to set off alarm bells in the first place, but it only went downhill from there.

The animal was said to be a langur monkey, a long-tailed arboreal Asian monkey with a characteristic loud call.

It refused to sit anywhere other than up front with the driver, which is breaking a rule in itself on a bus. Passengers definitely aren’t supposed to be in front of the white line while the bus is moving.

Not only did the bus driver let the monkey sit on his lap, but he actually let the little animal take the wheel of the bus – for about 10 minutes!

To be fair, it’s quite impressive that the monkey didn’t crash in that time; I can pretty confidently say it didn’t have a bus driver’s license.
