“I drive a 44-tonne artic and two minutes before I was overtaking a heavy goods vehicle and after a car overtook me. “It was unbelievable. I felt sick.

It is not the first time that Dave has come across such an incident on the roads. He added: “I have actually seen it twice in the past.

“Once, in the day, someone turned right but realised straight away and turned around, and I’ve also seen one the opposite side at night going the same direction as me but other side.

It’s frightening.

“Hopefully this will raise awareness and make people be more vigilant.”
