A West Midlands Police motorcyclist has had a lucky escape after nearly being knocked off of his motorbike by a careless driver yesterday (18th June).
@TrafficWMP uploaded the 30-second video clip to Twitter following the close call that happened on a roundabout.
In the footage, two police motorcyclists can be seen to enter a roundabout in moderate traffic.
As they go to take their exit, a silver VW Polo cuts directly across them, narrowly missing the lead police motorcyclist.
It was only the quick reactions of the police officer that prevented an accident.
In the footage, the VW Polo continues driving, albeit slowly, as the police motorcyclist re-starts his bike, ready to catch up with the careless driver.
A spokesperson for WMP Traffic tweeted to say:
“Here’s a near miss from yesterday that’s a good reminder of the importance of lane discipline, signalling and looking for other road users.
“The driver was stopped and dealt with appropriately”.
