Joseff Edwards is a student cum school bus driverDecember 2nd, 2011 - 10:16 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
London, Dec 2 (THAINDIAN NEWS) An 18-year-old British student has the added responsibility of driving his peers to and from school each day. Joseff Edwards passed his driving test in the summer and got a job at his school as the bus driver.
Each day, Joseff drives the 38-seater school bus to the school at Ysgol Dyffryn Taf in Whitland. He settles and study with them before driving them to their various destinations at the close of the day. He is paid £20 each day and Joseff says he loves the job that he is doing.
He told newsmen that, “The best thing is the looks I get - people can’t believe it… I love driving the bus. It’s really fun - much better than a car.”
Joseff got the opportunity to drive his colleagues partly because his father runs the bus company which the school is contracted to.
Critics say Joseff may not be matured enough to handle dangerous situations on the road. Nonetheless, his parents, Clive and Heather, says they are proud of the accomplishment of their son.
His mother said she will love more people the age of her son to take up the job of driving school buses. She believes that the action of her son will inspire others to follow suit.
