Driver banned for shunting biker

Teacher disqualified and fined after ramming motorcyclist in rush hour frenzy

A MOTORIST who repeatedly shunted a commuters's motorbike while in a rush to get to work has been handed a driving ban and hefty fine.

Christopher Parker, a teacher from Leeds, rammed his Volvo into Robert Hill's BMW motorcycle in order to bully the biker out of his way, Leeds Crown Court heard.

The incident was spotted by a police motorcyclist, who arrested Parker and charged him with dangerous driving.

Parker told Police: "I'm in a hurry."

In court, Parker, of Keddleston Road, Roundhay, denied dangerous driving but was fined £1,000 with £750 costs and banned for a year. He will also have to take an extended driving test when his ban ends.
