The IT1000 device from Intelligent Telematics, fitted on a commercial vehicle, recorded the overtaking manoeuvre which led to multiple vehicles being damaged.
The video footage shows the moments leading up to the crash as the driver of the Ford Fiesta attempts a high speed manoeuvre on the single-lane road, using the central cross hatched area. While dangerously passing other road users the vehicle hits two vans and then narrowly misses a serious collision with an oncoming car as it spins out of control.
Sam Footer, head of international business and strategic development at Intelligent Telematics, commented: “Reckless driving, such as this crazy overtaking, represents a huge risk to all road users. Our 3G vehicle cameras are being used by an increasing number of businesses to capture evidence of crashes and near misses involving their vehicles, as well as identify areas of improvement within their own fleet operations. This is helping combat dangerous behaviour and encourage higher levels of safety.”
