If you’re in a hurry and you’re thinking about pushing your luck in traffic, doing so without knowing the road ahead like the back of your hand is extremely dangerous.
Who knows what made this BMW driver maneuver his F30 3-Series saloon the way he did, but chances are you don’t go for that type of overtaking without being a little irritated with traffic.
The incident took place in Albany, NY and prior to the Bimmer ending up on two wheels, you can see it driving behind the dashcam car through at least one other intersection (that we know of).
We can also hear somebody honking their horn around the 9-second mark, which could have been the guy in the BMW getting angry at whoever is behind the wheel of the dashcam car for letting that school bus through.
That would definitely explain what the mechanism was behind the 3-Series’ driver deciding to clear the car ahead in such a risky manner.
Unfortunately for him, there was no room on the outside of that turn and by the way, is it just us or did the dashcam car speed up once it was side by side with the Bimmer?
