My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Michigan
There was no ticket or police involved in this situation:
There are 13 adults who volunteer to communte to & from working using a 15 passenger van. 1 passenger ABSOLUTELY refuses to communicate to one of the volunteer drivers and there are occasions when she gets out of the van & then walks directly behind the van to open the cargo door & retrieve her bag. Since she REFUSES to communicate her intention to walk behind the van & open the rear cargo area, there has been 1 or 2 occasions in the past 1 year when the driver begins to drive away & then someone says 'hey' and the driver immediately stops until her bag is removed. Last week when this happened & the driver apologized -- at the end of the day -- the passenger returned to the van and began to talk publicly & loudly in front of a group of 5-6 other members of the vanpool; blaming the driver for being unsafe; absolutely refusing to communicate to let the driver know that she was planning to exit & walk behind the van & open the closed cargo door & get a bag; stated that she was upset & thought the apology was not sincere; and then repeatedly threatened to report the driver to the vanpool company as being unsafe.
What can be done? -- Are there any laws about walking directly behind a van or opening a closed rear cargo door without informing the driver of the intent? Can a passenger absolutely REFUSE to communicate to a driver about this potentially dangerours situation ? Help is needed with this issue!!
