Disgraceful bus driver jailed for using bus as weapon. Cyclist was obviously provoking him but still

CCTV from The Guardian website

He was left with a few fractures. Bus driver jailed for 17months...should of got a lot more time behind bars.

Soft judicial system slaps wrists once again!

Can't work out what was going on and how 'provoked' the bus driver was, looks like attempted murder to me, all be it not premeditated. disgusted.gif

To be honest even if the cyclist was a nutter and breaking all the rules of the road the crime remains really rather shocking. Probably the bus caused the cyclists reaction in the first place but in that case the rider is a braver (dafter?) man than me.

I've noticed loads of crap drivers on the roads recently and its putting me off riding my road bike! Been cut up on roundabouts countless times and been overtaken just before junctions etc, even when riding centrally in the lane to be turning right. So annoying!
