Should I call the bus company? *UPDATE! I called*

This morning an elementary school bus parked in front of my home (and in home daycare) and the bus driver proceeded to smoke an E cig...on the bus. No children on the bus yet. But  children outside the bus...my clients. When she was finished she drove away. I don't know much about  E cigs but I thought that was just not a good example anyways. And why park in a neighborhood? Right in front of my house? Do you think this is something to call on? 

UPDATE: I called the bus company. Some of you may think its stupid. "kids see people smoking every day" yadda yadda yadda. Well I guess you are not taking into consideration the responsibility that those have who work with children. They can and do look up to these people.  I dont care how petty you view it. 

 So when I called and explained the situation I was told that she shouldn't have been on the bus, and that she shouldn't have been parked in a neighborhood. I was also told that they are "working on the E cig situation" Obviously I'm not the only one to complain. Maybe you dont view it as a big thing. Doesn't matter. Its called respect.

Yes! How dare she set such a bad example on an empty bus!

I wouldn't personally. I don't think that's a real huge danger there. Don't get me wrong, cig smoke isn't good for anyone but seriously I think as a society we are getting paranoid about it. Now we even have people getting worked up about "third hand smoke".

really- there weren't any kids on the bus.  yelling/ hitting kids, driving to fast- is something to call on.

Wasn't there just a big thing about the contents of e-cigs and how bad they are? I only read the heading but it was something about still being harmful to others around the smoker.

No not at all. The bus was empty, she wasn't hurting anyone.

my daycare parents and children saw. There were no children on the bus. But there were outside. She was parked in front of my house as well. Why park in a neighborhood?
