Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: A325, Farnham, GU9 7SD, United Kingdom


Approaching a road junction with a blind bend, the second car decides to overtake blighthly ignoring 4 UK Highway Code instructions and breaking 3 rules. Specifically:
Rule 163
Overtake only when it is safe and legal to do so. You should
- give motorcyclists, cyclists and horse riders and horse drawn vehicles at least as much room as you would when overtaking a car (see Rules 211 to 215). As a guide:
- leave at least 1.5 metres when overtaking cyclists at speeds of up to 30mph
Rule 166
DO NOT overtake if there is any doubt, or where you cannot see far enough ahead to be sure it is safe. For example, when you are approaching
- a corner or bend
Rule 167
DO NOT overtake where you might come into conflict with other road users. For example
- approaching or at a road junction on either side of the road
- stay behind if you are following a cyclist approaching a roundabout or junction, and you intend to turn left.
