A bus operator for the Corporation of the City of Niagara Falls was suspended for three days without pay after it was discovered he obstructed the security camera on his bus, handled cash and used a hand-held device while behind the wheel.

Ken Kissmann’s behaviour came to light after a passenger contacted the employer about a slip-and-fall accident in November 2014. The employer checked its hard-drive but by that time the video for the date of the accident had been over-written by more recent recordings.

The employer did notice, however, the available footage showed Kissmann tampering with the
on-board camera by placing two transfer tickets in front of the lens in order to prevent it from recording his activities. Kissmann was also recorded handling cash and using a hand-held device while behind the wheel of the bus.
