Driving instructor captures terrible drivers on tape


A disgruntled driving instructor has released a video displaying some of the dangerous manoeuvres motorists perform to avoid being stuck behind learner drivers.

The footage, which was recorded on the anonymous instructor's dashcam at various locations around the West Midlands, shows impatient motorists overtaking and undertaking her car in ridiculously unsafe fashion.

The instructor told the Daily Mail that some of her students had been "put off for life" after the way they were treated by other road users.

She said: "I think drivers should be ashamed of how they treat learner drivers. No one was born with the ability to drive but they are very quick to forget how they felt whilst in the learning process.

"A few years ago on a lesson we had a very close call when someone pulled out on us. It affected my learner so much, she has never driven since. This has affected her for the rest of her life, as now she relies on public transport.

"If everyone was to drive with a roof box on for just one day, it would shock you they way learners are treated on the road. It seems that once people have past their test, they forget all the safety aspects that they learned."
