17 months equates to between 6 - 8 months inside then he's free.
He should be disqualified for life.
With a minimum sentence of 10 years. That's what you would get if you broke someone's legs with a weapon. But as usual because it's a vehiole it's a lenient sentence.
There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

lets face it if you were ever planning murder, you should do it with a car. you would probably get a 6 month ban and 5 hours community service

What a big wuss...
Has to man up with a bus before he dare take on the cyclist..
I don't wish any well for him, and I hope he lives a miserable life. Such behaviour is simply unacceptable.

If I swung a machete or an iron bar at someone moments after they'd had a row with me I'd be up on an attempted murder charge and be facing a frigging long time in prison.
Swing a bus at them, 17 months.
Or, more annoyingly, at most half of 17 months and a few months with a tag on.
My only hope is that Gavin Hill ends up trapped in his cell getting ridden harder than Djamolidine Abdoujaparov's bike on the Champs Elysees.

Don't forget people that you can appeal the sentence to the Attorney General as being too lenient. If enough people complain it may get raised to a more reasonable sentence. Note, you don't have to have any involvement in the case to raise the matter with the AG, just got to think it too low. Do a web search and you'll find details.
