These manners were common "back in the day" on TriMet. I used to have a driver that would actually WAIT for me. I lived a half block away.
I agree with you completely. I really have a problem with trucks, buses, etc idling for long periods of time. I used to live near a carpet warehouse and was sick of the noise and odor of delivery trucks idling for no reason. I picked up the phone and talked to the driver's boss who wanted to know specifics. Voila! Immediately, the driver was told to shut off his engine.
Unsafe bridges are pretty important.
Of course this is news! Any civil servant who think he/she is above the law should be reprimanded or worse and it should be brought to the public's attention. Let the "O" or Internet cover the serious stuff.
