A driver has been fined almost £400 and given nine points on his licence for a ‘careless’ close pass on a group of cyclists.
The impatient motorist was trying to get past the riders as they approached a traffic island.
One of the cyclists even had to swerve to avoid being hit as the driver sped by on the A4054 in Pontypridd, Wales.
GoSafe, which aims to ensure safety on Welsh roads, said the manoeuvre ‘severely increased the risk to the safety of the cyclists involved’.
The motorist pleaded guilty to driving without due care at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court, where he received a fine of £386 and was given the maximum amount of points you can receive for that offence.
