THIS is the shocking moment when a driver overtakes other cars in a blind corner, forcing oncoming traffic to swerve.

Another motorist driving behind him captured the near miss on his dashcam.

The clip, from the road in North Berwick, East Lothian, has drawn an angry reaction from TikTok users, who surrounded the motorist, all criticizing his driving.

The video shows the red Toyota Yaris driver pulling onto the right-hand side of the road on a narrow dirt road.

They then slowly pull into the wrong side of the road to overtake a black cab ahead.

As the Yaris approaches a bend in the road, a black car is shown coming around the corner and heading straight for the overtaking car.

The two vehicles are then only a few centimeters away from colliding head-on before the quick-thinking, approaching driver swerves to the left onto a grass verge.

The cars then flash their hazard lights to alert other cars to slow down behind them.

Curiously, after the near miss, the Toyota driver turns left into a narrow lane immediately – making the risky overtaking completely pointless.

The motorist who recorded the video posted the clip to TikTok earlier this week.

Today the 29-year-old, who captured the moment, said: “To be honest the video shows it all.

“We were both a kilometer or two behind the taxi, the car in front showed no intention of trying to overtake the taxi, although there were opportunities further back, and then out of nowhere near a blind bend tried to do so.”

The clip has garnered over 29,000 views and hundreds of comments from viewers who were shocked by the clip.

One said: “Cut the license!”

Another wrote: “It’s a good thing the country road had a siding.”

A third commented: “Nothing to do with a country road.

“They were going too slow and pulling away too early with a corner in the distance.”

A fourth replied: “He could have killed someone, they clearly didn’t know the road.”
