Stark tractor footage highlights issue of dangerous motorists
An agricultural contractor has underlined the issue of dangerous driving incidents faced by tractor drivers on a regular basis with a series of stark footage showing the extent of the problem.
Dashcam footage from the contractor’s tractor shows a montage of incidents over the past two years showing motorists blatantly flouting road safety and rules of the road through reckless overtaking and cutting off actions.
The incidents involve a number of vehicles including: cars; vans; lorries; and even what appears to be a road sweeper.
The footage shows a number of close calls and near escapes, with drivers lucky to avoid collision with oncoming traffic in the opposite direction.
In addition, a couple of incidents were recorded where the contractor was about to turn into a field off the road only to be cut off by impatient drivers speeding past.
