Dangerous overtake: Who to blame for incident?

A DASHCAM video of a dangerous overtaking manoeuvre has sparked online debate over who was responsible for causing the incident.

The video, taken on a road on the Darling Downs and posted on Facebook, shows a car travelling in an overtaking lane get overtaken via a median strip and right-hand turning lane.

The motorist who posted the video says "apparently I wasn't passing the other car fast enough for this tailgater".

While overtaking in a median strip and turning lane is clearly illegal, many online have blamed the driver who took the footage for causing the incident.

Many claim he should have merged left and out of the overtaking lane.

  • What do you think? Who is in the wrong?
