Van driver almost crashes after going through red light at busy Lincoln junction

Red means stop.

Waiting at the traffic lights can be a little dull, but one white van driver in Lincoln proved why it’s a good idea.

Dashcam footage, posted on the ‘Idiot drivers in Lincolnshire and the UK’ Youtube channel this month, shows a loaded truck ploughing through red lights and narrowly missing another vehicle on the Brayford Way junction.

The white van, which seems to be carrying building supplies, almost collides with a car as it pulls into the junction.

Luckily, the car driver sees the oncoming van and manages to slow down in time for the van driver to swerve out of the way.
