But incredibly the court heard that Smith could be handed his job back as his boss was so 'impressed' by his conduct, both before and after the incident.Wha...?
Philip Hatvani, defending, said the automatic driving ban, which Smith would get for admitting dangerous driving, would be punishment enough.I'm not sure a man with dyslexia and an unstable temper is really the person to be in charge of a large vehicle...
He said: 'He is going to have to ride out the ban, take the extended driving test, retake his coach test and also get a lorry licence.
'It is going to be particularly hard for this man. He went to a special needs school because he has dyslexia. He has no academic qualifications.
'But he managed to find himself work, to work his way up to become a coach driver.
'He is going to find it incredibly difficult to find any other type of work.'
Especially since it seems his eyesight isn't too good, either:
The court also heard that Smith leaned out of his window and stuck his middle finger up at a witness and a policeman as he drove away./facepalm
