Dangerous driver caught on dash cam near bridge on Bruce Hwy

WITHIN days of motorists recklessly overtaking on the newly opened Mount Morgan range, a dash cam has captured another stupid act on our roads.

A video uploaded to the YouTube channel CQ Dashcam recently shows a sedan overtake another car on a main street near the Neville Hewitt Bridge on the Bruce Highway by veering off the road and onto the shoulder.

The car then pulls back in front of the other vehicle and speeds off.

According to the video's caption, the footage was captured on June 24 and has already received over 400 views.

Acting Inspector Wayne Hutchings from the Queensland Road Policing Command said they were seeing more and more videos emerge of this kind of behaviour thanks to dash cams.

"They are such a readily available product now and can certainly be helpful to police," he said.

"Any evidence is good evidence. A video can collaborate with someone's version of events, whether they are an involved party or a witness."

As Queensland enters the last week of the school holidays, Acting Inspector Hutchings said people travelling to and from holiday destinations needed to remain vigilant.

"That type of driving will not be tolerated," he said.

"People should be aware you might not just get caught at the time but a lot of motorists do have dash cams and can pass this footage on to police. There can be consequences."
