Reckless white van man almost smashes into huge HGV in motorway road rage row

This is the dramatic moment a dangerous white van driver almost causes a horrific motorway pile-up in the ultimate road rage[1] incident. Shocking dashcam footage shows the motorist tailgate a car[2] in the fast lane, before weaving across traffic at speed to get to the slow lane. But a HGV pulls into the slow lane unaware the van was there.

The van driver has to swerve into the hard shoulder on the busy M5 southbound near Halesowen, West Mids., and almost ploughs off the road.

The incredible clip, recorded on January 27 at about 4.30pm, captures other panicked motorists brake furiously before the van driver speeds up and goes to overtake the lorry. It overtakes the huge vehicle but slows down suddenly, again forcing others to slam the brakes and avoid another pile-up.

Eventually, the reckless white van man moves to the hard shoulder to exit the busy motorway at Junction 3 for Kidderminster, Worcs.

Social media users have blasted the van driver. One furious motorist wrote: “This kind of motorist should be banned from our roads for ten years, this kind of driving is not clever it is downrite (sic) dangerous.” “This could have resulted in an accident that killed innocent people.

If you can’t see how then let’s hope you don’t drive.

Between 8 and 10 people are killed or seriously injured EVERY DAY on UK roads.

There are 10,000 drivers on UK roads with over 12 points that for whatever exceptional reason judges have decided the automatic ban does not apply,” another posted.
