Road rage man’s driving ban reduced on appeal

An angry man who was jailed after swinging a baton during a road rage incident had his driving ban slashed by appeal judges in London on Friday.
Robert Mark Cox, (51), of Third Avenue, Sandbach, swiped the extendable weapon at a 60-year-old motorist who had objected to his driving.
The man thought Cox had blocked his way in Hill Street, Crewe, last December, and was given “the finger” when he objected, a judge said.
The two men then got out of their cars in the street and a confrontation ensued, in which Cox swung the weapon, with the other driver jumping out of the way.
