Bus drivers who work for Metro say they'll be following all rules to the letter as part of a safety push by their union.

Drivers are warning that buses might fall behind schedule as a result. They say they'll observe posted speed limits, activate handicap lifts at every bus stop and won't pass other buses making stops.

Jackie Lynn Jeter, president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689, sent a letter to bus drivers over the weekend urging employees to perform all duties strictly by the book. Jeter says workers shouldn't give Metro any reason to suspend or fire them. A spokesman for Metro says the agency welcomes the campaign.
