‘Welcome to Swindon’ reads the sign as an ATS driver moves to overtake despite the presence of an oncoming vehicle.
The incident took place on Tadpole Lane in North Wiltshire in April.
Gill described it as a “dangerously close pass”.
She said the overtake was, “alarming for me but must also have been very alarming for the oncoming vehicle.”
She added: “The van is an ATS van and I have contacted the company, whose website boasts a ROSPA gold certificate, twice, but they have never responded. (I have received automatic confirmation of receipt.)
Over the years road.cc has reported on literally hundreds of close passes and near misses involving badly driven vehicles from every corner of the country – so many, in fact, that we’ve decided to turn the phenomenon into a regular feature on the site. One day hopefully we will run out of close passes and near misses to report on, but until that happy day arrives, Near Miss of the Day will keep rolling on.
If you’ve caught on camera a close encounter of the uncomfortable kind with another road user that you’d like to share with the wider cycling community please send it to us at info [at] road.cc or send us a message via the road.cc Facebook page.
If the video is on YouTube, please send us a link, if not we can add any footage you supply to our YouTube channel as an unlisted video (so it won't show up on searches).
Please also let us know whether you contacted the police and if so what their reaction was, as well as the reaction of the vehicle operator if it was a bus, lorry or van with company markings etc.
