Shocking road rage incident on M8 shows driver tailgating other vehicles

A SHOCKING road rage incident captured on dash cam involving a truck driver and a car driver has been condemned by road safety experts. The driving by the BMW driver has been described as "atrocious and vindictive" after he was cut up by a truck driver on the M8 in West Lothian on May 1. Moments earlier the same driver was allegedly tailgating other vehicles, including the dash cam car belonging to equestrian instructor Natalie McLean.

In frustration the driver starts to swerve from side to side behind the truck at speed, throwing up dust as he straddled the outside lane and central reservation trying to find a way past.

"What you doing? He's trying to get in between them, don't be so stupid" shouted Natalie from Falkirk. Once the truck pulls back into the left lane the BMW driver overtakes, and then recklessly swerves in front at the last moment at speed to exit the motorway at Livingston.

After sharing the clip online angry comments came thick and fast blaming both drivers. Nicholas Mcfadden commented: "I really wished one of them would have braked. "It's because of w*****s like him that safe road users are screwed on their insurance."

Ollie Head wrote: "To be fair, I'd be a bit annoyed if a lorry pulled out on me when he could have waited for me to go past first, made me brake and then dawdle about playing who's the bigger elephant. "Can't say I'd have acted like this driver though, gives BMWs a bad name." Mark Bakernault said: "That lorry driver should slam his brakes on.

"That car driver wouldn't do it again." Kyle Kaye added: "There's a fully empty hard shoulder so why is he stuck behind the lorries?" Speaking today Natalie, 27 said: "He was driving like an absolute madman.

"When he came off at the next junction his car looked like it was gonna tip over! "The speed was horrendous, he should have his licence taken off him no other way to put it."
Edmund King, AA president said: "This driver needs to heed Government health advice and apply it to their driving - keep your distance.

"In this incident they weren't even following the 2 second rule let alone the 2 metre social distancing rule. "Atrocious and vindictive driving." To receive one WhatsApp message a day with Edinburgh Live's headlines, as well as breaking news alerts, text NEWS to 07899067815.
