Please tip your bus driver

So what if they rage through traffic, cause at least one accident a day and barely stop for passengers.

Drivers of Mexico City's rickety old "pesero" buses say they deserve tips for their harrowing rides.

Since the city approved a fare hike only for newer buses, the union representing the drivers says passengers will be asked to pay tips of at least 50 Mexican cents on top of their normal fares to cover gasoline, maintenance -- and driver training.
