The motorist was reported for driving without due care and attention for cutting up the officer, who was participating in a close pass operation in Malvern
A motorist in Malvern was reported yesterday for driving without due care and attention after committing a dangerous close pass on a bike-riding police officer.
The officer was taking part in a close pass operation in the town, targeting motorists who overtake cyclists too closely, when the driver – seemingly unaware of an oncoming lorry – decided to pass him on a bend.
The motorist then had to sharply swerve back in front of the cyclist as the lorry approached, narrowly avoiding a collision with both the HGV and the police officer.
The officer, who captured the dangerous overtake on his helmet camera, reported the motorist to court for driving without due care and attention.
