    Both the driver and passanger need to be banned from public transportation..This pasanger has serious mental health issues..I never heard of someone getting off a bus and then going back to retrieve their handbag..As a woman, my handbag is always with me and their is no way i’ll walk off a bus and leave it..I might leave a package, but never my handbag..This driver should have her CDL revoke..One thing you always do when you take off, is to make sure you hava a clear entry into traffic, all doors are closed and no one is hanging on or chasing after your bus..
