More motorists driving badly or carelessly, creating more congestion and wasting more valuable public services time and money.

When are they going to start really punishing motorists? They cause thousands of accidents, kill and injure other motorists, cyclists and pedestrians every day, and all because they can't stick to the rules of the road.

How do you know the bus driver wasn't to blame?

It's unwise to pass judgements when you don't know the full details.

Madi50n doesn't specifically blame the car driver or bus driver. He/she just states 'motorist', which could be either.

Yes let's not jump to conclusions here. The bus CCTV should shed some light on the event.

As Grand pointed out, bus drivers are motorists too.

If the CCTV images are anything as poor as the one shown the other day of someone assulting another passenger, then they'll be as much use as a chocolate tea pot.

But bus drivers aren't usually called "motorists".

Yet motorists is what they are; buses have motors, bus drivers drive buses with motors, therefore they are motorists. It's not rocket science.

So does anyone go up to a bus driver and say "Excuse me, motorist, when does this bus leave?"

The Oxford English Dictionary's basic definition of a motorist is "The driver of a motor vehicle, esp. a car".

Hahaha. You lot really need to get out more. Wether or not they are classed as "motorists" is a ridiculous argument. One thing is for sure you people arguing are definitely classed as "d***heads"
