The vehicle is seen cutting across the van besides them, causing the van to slam on the brakes. The vehicle then goes over the chevrons to the left and even appears to catch the grass verge. Dashcam footage on Hedon Road. The next clip shows a driver who appears to enter Asda in Bilton via its exit despite signs saying there is no entry. Despite the signage it seems this happens fairly often, as a comment on the Facebook post said: “Always happens there – seen it loads of times, even taxis do the same”. The Mercedes driver seen in the next clip can be seen pushing through traffic approaching the Stoneferry roundabouts. The driver weaves in and out of the two lanes and forces other cars to make way. The next clip shows a cement truck turning right at the lights onto Hall road. But instead of continuing down the road ahead the driver of the truck attempts a three-point turn in the middle of the junction. This blocks cars from at least three different directions and causes the camera car to wait in the middle of the traffic lights for the truck to finish. Dashcam footage shows traffic on Clough Road in Hull. Unwilling to wait in the traffic surrounding Clough Road, the driver in the next clip appears to speed the wrong way up the road, causing an oncoming car to brake suddenly. The driver then squeezes through static cars on the roundabout before speeding off down the road. There appears to be something of a debate around who is responsible for the potential mishap in the next clip. Initially it seems the white car has pulled out without giving way to the camera car.

It seems the driver on the left didn’t realise the lane they were in was for turning left only. So when the camera car sets off straight across the roundabout, so does the other car. Dashcam footage shows confusion at a mini roundabout in Hull. The camera car is then hit towards its rear as both cars attempt to occupy the same lane on the roundabout. But what do you think?
