Two more dangerous examples of overtaking on Saturday whilst out with a pupil doing Pass Plus. We were on a 60mph road – a known accident blackspot (almost daily someone nearly manages to kill themselves, and every couple of weeks one of them succeeds) – doing 60. Typical Saturday afternoon traffic. A blue Toyota Aygo (VN56 XRM) driver uses his peanut-sized brain to the max and overtakes in the face of oncoming traffic. You should have seen the faces of the two middle-aged women in the car he almost collided with! He spent the rest of the length of the road just in front, so what he thought he was proving is anyone’s guess.
Then, about 40 minutes later a black Toyota Corolla (GV52 XMR) carried out an equally dangerous stunt – with equal evident purpose – at traffic lights.
