Today’s gung-ho overtake of a car and two cyclists only seems more and more ludicrous the more times you watch it.
The incident occurred near Mobberley in Cheshire on November 27.
The driver of a rental van moves onto the opposite side of the road to overtake a car, then continues past the two cyclists.
This manoeuvre is carried out despite the presence of a very large, extremely visible, oncoming vehicle which causes the driver to cut back in near the leading cyclist.
Watch the footage again and you can see that the van driver travelling in the opposite direction doesn’t merely stop, but does so hard up against the verge to avoid a collision.
The video was submitted by Ant, who reported the incident to Cheshire Police.
The force told him it would be taking “further action”.
> 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.
