Our regular series featuring close passes from the UK and further afield - today it's New Zealand...

Our Near Miss of the Day series sometimes features videos submitted by readers from outside the UK - and today's comes from as far away as you can get from here, New Zealand, and shows a driver undertaking a cyclist before stopping to try and give some 'advice'.

It was submitted by road.cc reader Kerry, who told us: "I thought you might be interested in the New Zealand standard of driving.

"This undertake happened on my way to work this afternoon [Sunday]  at 12.00 on State Highway 1 40 km south of Taupo in the Central North Island.

"Pretty funny as the girl pulled over to give me a lecture about being in her way and when I didn't stop, she overtook again, and her passenger threw a paper cup at me," he added.

> Near Miss of the Day turns 100 - Why do we do the feature and what have we learnt from it?

Over the years road.cc has reported on literally hundreds of close passes and near misses involving badly driven vehicles from every corner of the country – so many, in fact, that we’ve decided to turn the phenomenon into a regular feature on the site. One day hopefully we will run out of close passes and near misses to report on, but until that happy day arrives, Near Miss of the Day will keep rolling on.

If you’ve caught on camera a close encounter of the uncomfortable kind with another road user that you’d like to share with the wider cycling community please send it to us at info [at] road.cc or send us a message via the road.cc Facebook page.

If the video is on YouTube, please send us a link, if not we can add any footage you supply to our YouTube channel as an unlisted video (so it won't show up on searches).

Please also let us know whether you contacted the police and if so what their reaction was, as well as the reaction of the vehicle operator if it was a bus, lorry or van with company markings etc.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
