Watch shocking moment driver overtakes cars on blind corner forcing traffic to swerve – everyone’s saying the same thing | The Sun

THIS is the shocking moment a driver overtakes other cars on a blind corner, forcing oncoming traffic to swerve out of the way.

Another motorist who was driving behind captured the near-miss on his dash-cam.



The clip from the road in North Berwick, East Lothian has provoked an angry reaction from TikTok users who rounded on the motorist and all criticised his driving.

The video shows the red Toyota Yaris driver pulling out into the right hand side of the road on a narrow country lane.

They then slowly drive along the wrong side of the road in an attempt to overtake a black cab in front.

As the Yaris approaches a bend in the road, a black car is shown coming around the corner and heading straight towards the overtaking car.

The two vehicles are then just inches away from crashing head-on into each other before the quick-thinking approaching driver swerves to the left and onto a grass verge.

The cars then flash their hazard lights to alert other cars to slow down behind them.

Bizarrely, the Toyota driver turns into a small lane just on the left from the near-miss – rendering the risky overtake completely pointless.

The motorist who captured the video posted the clip on TikTok earlier this week.

Speaking today the 29-year-old who captured the moment said: “The video shows it all, to be honest.

“Both of us were behind the taxi for a mile or two, the car in front didn't show any intention of wanting to overtake the taxi even though there were opportunities further back and then went for it out of nowhere close to a blind bend.”

The clip has collected over 29,000 views and hundreds of comments from viewers who were shocked by the clip.

One said: “Cut the licence up!"

Another wrote: “It's a good job that the country road had a track run off.”

A third commented: “Nothing to do with a country road.

"They were going too slow and pulled out too early whilst a corner was in the distance.”

A fourth replied: “He could have killed someone, they clearly didn't know the road.”
