THE dangers of overtaking on double white lines should be understood by every road user.

But one Central Queensland motorist knows first-hand that this risky road behaviour is occurring every day.

The road user, who wishes to remain anonymous, was inspired to film an example of this dangerous driving after seeing it occur three times on her way to work.

"It's something I see nearly every day I travel to work and I'm just so sick of seeing this reckless behaviour.

"If people are in such a rush they should leave earlier rather than putting people's lives at risk because they have no patience."

This latest video comes after footage of a truck overtaking a caravan caused a spate of online comments from Bulletin readers late last year.

A police spokeswoman yesterday said that all traffic infringements of this nature are taken seriously.

"Any driver behaviour that breaks the road rules can have unforeseen and often dangerous consequences," she said. "The road rules are designed to protect the motoring public.

"Failure to keep left of double continuous dividing lines carries a fine of $198 and three demerit points," the spokeswoman said.
