Capital Metro trains APD to drive a bus

Capital Metro, the public transit authority for the Austin-area, has a blog entry about training the Austin Police Department’s DWI unit to drive a new Breath-Alcohol Testing bus donated to the City by CapMetro.

The simulator is pretty sweet; would love to have a chance to see how hard it would be to drive a bus. I’m hoping there’s an open house of the bus as well. I suppose they would drive it to a DWI enforcement zone (i.e. South 1st or South Congress around the time bars close) and test folks inside.

The video from Fox News 7 is below. EDIT: The video has been removed from YouTube as of August 2018.
