Dangerous Albany Highway overtake caught on camera

Albany Advertiser

A driver has been fined and lost demerits points after a harrowing near-miss on Albany Highway today.

Mt Barker police shared dashcam footage of a white Toyota Prado overtaking a caravan and almost colliding with a red sedan coming in the opposite direction.

The Prado quickly moves back in front of the caravan, which was forced to move across the road verge, to help avoid a collision with the oncoming vehicle.

“This near miss just cost a driver $400 and four demerit points,” the post read.

“We are out in force this weekend and will not tolerate this manner of driving. Please be patient.”
