one dangerous driver copies another
I was quite some distance away from the traffic lights when they changed to amber & I started to slow down, as did the van ahead of me in the right lane. After the lights had already changed to amber a Toyota & a BMW passed me at speed although both cars still had plenty of time to stop. The BMW at first slowed down almost to a stop behind the van that had already stopped in the right lane but then copied the Toyota & also went through the red light. I felt this was very dangerous as the BMW drivers view of the roundabout was blocked by the van & the traffic on the roundabout started to move off as their light turned green. Even more worryingly one of the lanes was coned off for roadworks leaving less space to avoid a possible crash or putting road workers in danger so extra care should have been taken, not less.
I reported both to the police but have no idea of the outcome.
