Godwin McNeal is accident free after driving his bus more than a million miles, so if you need to ride on public transit in Cleveland there's no better person behind the wheel.

Cleveland.com reported the 64-year-old McNeal has been a driver for the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority for 40 years, logging an estimated 1.2 million miles without causing an accident.

Officials said it's the longest preventable accident-free streak in the RTA's history.

McNeal has been driving a 63-foot-long bus along on Euclid Avenue, one of Cleveland's main thoroughfares, weekdays for the last five years from 2:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. without breaks.

Asked what his secret might be, McNeal said he doesn't think about it. He then added that patience is needed.

McNeal hopes to retire in 2020 with his streak intact.
