Tonight: why won't people on buses give their seat up for a pregnant woman in 2018?Journalist Brigitte Purcell, who is seven months pregnant, recorded her trip to work on her cellphone where not a single person was willing to give their seat up for her.
The former Newshub reporter says the event was not isolated and is a daily occurrence, as she travels from Takapuna to Auckland City.
Are bus-goers so distracted by their cellphones that they don't even realise what's going on around them?
