AKRON, Ohio (AP) — The head of a mass transit agency in northeast Ohio knows the risks of texting while driving, including for himself.

Executive Director Richard Enty with Akron's Metro Regional Transit Authority is wrapping up a five-day suspension without pay for texting while driving his agency-provided Ford Escape.

He began the suspension Wednesday after turning himself in for texting while driving.

Enty tells the Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/11KUDXE) he realized he had a problem when a bus pulled next to him as he texted and thought one of his drivers might have seen the violation.

Enty joined the Metro agency last year after a long career at the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority. He is paid more than $117,000 a year in Akron and the suspension will cost him $2,254.
