Have you experienced anger on the roads?

3 hours
First broadcast:
Friday 17 February 2012

This morning CCTV footage has been uploaded to the internet that shows a bus driver in Bristol quite clearly ramming a cyclist off the road.

The driver concerned pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and causing grievous bodily harm, the cyclist suffered a broken leg and a broken wrist.

When sentencing the driver to 17 months in prison the Judge Mark Horton said the driver had "used the bus as a weapon to bully and intimidate" the cyclist.

The court heard that at a set of traffic lights the cyclist reached out and tugged on the bus's windscreen wipers.

In the footage you quite clearly see the cyclist hit the pavement and after a series of painful tumbles he's left trapped under his bike.
