    Despite merge in turn road markings the driver overtook at speed and didn’t see the pedestrians crossing until the last moment.

    The pedestrians should have been using an official crossing point, though the car should not have been trying to force its way past Mr Brown’s truck.

    The car used a right-hand filter lane to speed past the truck before nipping in ahead of the HGV when the driver finally spots the three pedestrians.

    Two of those attempting the cross the road were forced to pull back, avoiding being struck by the car which was forced to brake heavily.

    Although the driver of the Citroen C4 braked in enough time, he or she did not stop and drove on.

    Looking back the incident Mr Brown admits he should have stopped to allow them to cross safely.

    Sharing the clip online he wrote: ‘Got to overtake the truck any any cost.

    Un terzo ha scritto: ‘These are the type of drivers that are a danger on our roads, if you need to slam on your brakes you are driving too fast.

    Un quarto aggiunto: ‘That was about as close as anyone wants to come to death!

    ‘Lucky the one pedestrian stopped the other from a certain death.

    ‘Way too many people in this world should be confined to public transport.
