Bus Driver in Bristol Uses Bus as a Weapon!


After an argument between the bus driver and cyclist the bus driver purposely knocks over the cyclist. The bus driver, a family man from Somerset with a 10 year perfect track record has been jailed for 17 months. The cyclist suffered a broken leg and wrist. 
I think these actions from the bus driver reflect a general attitude from working drivers that if they are irritated with a cyclist they can use their vehicle to "get them back". I'v been forced into a curb by a bus in London at high speed for pulling out in front of the bus. When I caught up with the bus, the driver gave me the finger. I could reel of countless other occasions, as could most other cyclists who ride in the city on a daily basis, where a vehicle has purposely put me in danger out of irritation. Its a war zone out there and I'm glad the bus driver has gone down for 17 months, the cyclist could have been killed over road rage.
