MONCTON, NB – A YouTube video meant to call attention to the deplorable state of Moncton area road may have landed a school bus driver in some hot water.

The 50 second video clip, published on Monday, shows a school bus driving on the wrong side of the Wisener Road in order to avoid a pothole-riddled stretch of roadway.

The video has been watched more than 25-hundred times and among it’s viewers are School District 1 officials, who say they have launched an internal investigation into the matter.

A district spokesperson says they take the students safety very seriously and will act accordingly.

He would not comment on whether the driver has been identified or suspended.

Meanwhile, the man who shot the footage reports crews began patching the pock-marked stretch of road yesterday.

Here is a link to the video that sparked the controversy:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOpGEOyZyVg&feature=player_embedded
