This story is over

A dangerous driver was filmed on the A46 in Lincoln undertaking other motorists and avoiding a crash by the skin of their teeth.

Dashcam footage of the close call was uploaded to the ‘Idiot Drivers in Lincolnshire and the UK’ YouTube page and has been watched by almost 500 people

It was taken by a driver on the outside lane and shows a red VW car undertaking them before squeezing through the space next to a vehicle on the inside lane at speed.

The video has sparked some criticism of local drivers.

One person commented on the post to highlight the footage leading up to the incident was missing: “Lincolnshire drivers seem to have an insatiable desire to hog the outside lane of a dual carriageway in order to pass a slower-moving vehicle sometimes up to several hundred yards ahead, with a speed difference of only a few miles per hour…

“I am not suggesting that is what led up to the event in this video – I don’t know and on this occasion it wouldn’t excuse the actions of the third driver.”
