2 idiots showing no responsibility for what was clearly going to happen at some point, the driver of the van could not have seen the load at the top.
And the blind dangerous asshole just drives off to try and kill someone else.Close call there, Aughnacloy direction i think it said
Zero conscience, they'll be happy to try and kill someone else.Gotta love the way the bloke who has just escaped death carries on as if nothing has just happened. I'd have filled my trunks.
The lorry driver would be a witness to the sprinter pulling the dodgy overtaking move.I'd argue without the cameras if the van had hit it would be 100% at fault. With the camera footage I'd go 50/50 as overtook coming on a junction but your man just sailed out without due care.
I agree he’s blind and dangerous you should always look both ways. Thee van is still breaking the law and overtaking dangerously at a junction. They would both carry responsibility in an accident.It's a give way junction. The car neither gave way, looked, attempted to look on the main carriageway. It is 100% their fault, and they are 100% a blind dangerous **** who will kill someone some day
To me, the overtaking manoeuvre was started in a safe manner, the Burgundy wonder showed a momentary lack of road sense and awareness.
Both parties will hopefully learn from the experience.
I remember reading in an advanced driving book that you should only overtake a car when the oncoming lane is clear (obvs) and when you have passed any right hand junction openings. Some tend to only look to the right when turning left at a junction and this video proves that.
