Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: The Lost Boy, 3 Downing St, Farnham, England GU9 7PN, United Kingdom


Approaching a blind right angle bend, the road is narrowed to 1 lane for Covid pavement widening. So how does a professionally trained, experienced coach driver with an excellent field of view thinks he will overtake before he has to slam on the anchors to make the corner?
No idea what he was thinking but he's not done it since I sent the footage to his employer and asked about their company policy on vulnerable road users.
Note the local shopkeeper giving the driver grief at the end of the clip.
