Bus driver uses vehicle as a weapon

A bus driver in Bristol, England deliberately side swiped a cyclist with his bus. The incident happened in April of last year when cyclist Phillip Mead first argued with bus driver Gavin Hill; Mead alleged the bus had driven too close.

What happened after was recorded on a street video camera. The bus is seen swinging wide to pass the cyclist, then the driver pulls hard to his left, knocking the cyclist across an adjacent parking lot.

Mead suffered a broken leg and his bike was crushed; it is fortunate his injuries were not more serious, he could have been killed. This is road rage at its worst; this driver was out of control.

Sentencing the bus driver to 17 months jail, Judge Mark Horton told Hill, "This was not an accident. You used the bus as a weapon to bully and intimidate Mr Mead."

You can read more on the story on the BBC News Website.

My thanks to TheFootDown for alerting me to this story.

Three years and life suspension of his drivers license should be more like it.

Insanity rules our streets and anger rules too many drivers. Agree, take away his driving privileges for life and make him experience life as a cyclist and/or pedestrian.

OK, see you one crazy bus driver hitting a cyclist once and raise it to an auto driver runs over a woman twice: http://www.kmov.com/video/featured-videos/Woman-crossing-street-hit-twice-by-same-car-139438993.html
