A Roads Policing Unit has shared some terrifying footage of the moment when one of their motorcyclists was almost knocked off of his bike.
In the clip (below) the police rider can be seen riding along a country road. A body camera is recording the footage.
As the officer enters a blind left bend, on-coming traffic can be seen to exit the same bend.
As the officer enters the corner, he is met with the sight of a white BMW on the wrong side of the road as it comes hurtling towards him.
The driver of the BMW had decided to carry out an overtake on the blind bend and ended up missing a head-on collision with the police officer by a few feet.
In the footage that was uploaded to the Humber Roads Police Twitter account, an officer wrote:
“Well, I wasn’t expecting to see that when I went around the bend. Luckily the road was just wide enough for the three of us.
“Please think bike”.
