According to Hainan Online, in December last year, Chen Xurong slapped a bus driver who she suspected had overcharged her by 1 yuan for a ticket. The driver called the police, who arrested Chen.

The court in the city's Meilan District found her guilty of endangering public safety.

Violence Against Bus Drivers Dealt With Severely!

Lately, there were several cases of passengers attacking bus drivers;  some passengers even grabbed the steering wheel, sending the buses crashing, and in the most serious case of all, a bus plunged into a river, killing all onboard. The good news just came out; a court has sentenced a lady passenger who slapped a bus driver to four years in jail, a sentence that befits the crime!   In another case, a lady in Shanghai who grabbed the steering wheel in a dispute with the bus driver was deprived of her right of abode in the city!  In past cases which were not sent to the courts, only mild adminstrative punishments were meted out; not enough deterrent there!  The police should charge all offenders in court and let the court apply the full force of the law as in these two cases!

4 YEARS seem heavy, but personally speaking I'd have given her 3 years.
   The last year she'd have to clean buses interior while being paid for doing the job...

    It's not prison but training which will make you a better person...

4 years is a powerful deterrent to would be offenders!  And this should extend to hitting public servants in other areas, such as beating up doctors, nurses, chengguan, traffic policemen, flight stewardesses etc!

Better still, make it 4 years in prison plus one year cleaning buses before being released!
