Dash cam footage from a Tauranga truck driver shows one of the main reasons why there are so many crashes in the city.
The footage was taken from Glen Perry's truck on Wednesday, as he travelled along Takitimu Drive towards Bethlehem.
As Glen's truck was taking the exit to continue onto Bethlehem from Takitimu Drive, a Toyota Hilux ute pulls into Glen's lane, narrowly missing the front of his truck.
“And people wonder why there are so many accidents on the roads. He [the driver] would have been doing In excess of 110km/h when he did this and missed the front left corner of the truck by no more than a foot.
“This is the Route P expressway where the lanes split. The left that the ute was in goes out to The Lakes and the right, which I'm in, goes and joins up with the expressway to Bethlehem.”
Glen share the footage with SunLive to show “see some of the madness happening on our roads”.
