One Dublin Bus passenger was angry about drivers urinating in front of his daughter
A complaint was made to the Department of Transport back in January.

BACK IN JANUARY one individual made a rather strange complaint to Dublin Bus.

This particular customer was not annoyed about a recent price hike or a cancelled service – but rather the etiquette of drivers at a bus stop they used frequently.

Writing in, the person complained that drivers had been urinating in front of their 4-year-old daughter at the Ongar terminus.
