This is the terrifying moment a reckless driver was caught on camera going the wrong way around a roundabout allegedly with a child in the backseat. 

Peter Smith, 31, who filmed the scene on his dash cam in Waltham Abbey, Essex, said he saw a child passenger in the car which also had ‘child on board’ stickers. 

As the red car approaches the roundabout it drives to the right to pass the cars which are driving around the proper way.

A van almost slams into the backseat of the passenger side, where Mr Smith says the child was sitting. 

Three vehicles can be seen approaching a roundabout. 

A van begins travelling round the left of the roundabout in the correct lane and is closely followed by another car. 

The third car then begins driving on the right side of the roundabout and pulls out in front of the van as it tries to exit on the right hand side.

The van narrowly misses colliding with the vehicle as it continues straight over the roundabout and pulls out in the right-hand lane in order to overtake the second car, which is also coming off at this exit.

Mr Smith said the driver had been tailgating and weaving across lanes for at least two miles before pulling the stunt.

He said: ‘The truck driver had good reactions, it always looks further away on camera than it actually was.’

‘It happened on the Crooked Mile on Bumbles Green, it’s a 50mph limit on that road going down to 30mph on that particular stretch, the car had been tailgating and weaving out for at least two miles when unexpectedly he decided to do this.

‘I didn’t catch up with them either, so he must have gone at speed through the rest of the 30mph zone.’
