The moment an ‘idiot’ driver pulled out in front of fast moving traffic to perform a U-turn has been caught on video and is going viral.
The footage, filmed by Benjers Benjers, has been shared by the Facebook page Idiot UK Drivers Exposed – who say an Eddie Stobart truck driver deserves a medal after he avoided T-boning the bonehead behind the wheel of a white Mazda.
The video was shot on the A35, the main route between Devon and Dorset.
Its shows the Mazda driver, whose view of the road ahead appears to be obstructed by a van in front of him, pull out in front of two lanes of oncoming traffic to perform a U-turn.
The dangerous manoeuvre forces the drivers of lorry and a car to slam on their brakes to avoid smashing into the Mazda.
Idiot UK Drivers Exposed commented: “Unbelievable! Share! Eddie Stobart driver deserves a medal
“Near collision on A35 – Hats off to the Eddie Stobart driver.”
The video has been watched more than 347,000 times in less than 24 hours – with more than 1,000 people leaving comments slamming the Mazda driver, and praising the trucker.
