Touched a nerve? Frankly, I have no issue with how bad a driver you might be, or indeed that you feel the Highway Code should be disregarded - my interest was piqued when two days earlier I received this email:
Section 59 Warning & NIP Issued:
West Yorkshire Police have served a motorist with a Section 59 warning (Police Reform Act 2002) after a member of the public submitted video footage of inconsiderate driving to PoliceWitness.com – see the link below to view the incident.
This specific power allows police to literally seize vehicles that are being driven in an anti-social manner, which are then sold on or crushed! Another demonstration of how ‘we’ the public are changing driver behaviour for the better, and without a police officer in sight!

In other news, Northants Police issued a NIP (notice of intended prosecution) for two offences, driving without due care and contravening a traffic signal, watch the footage below.

Remember in the event of a collision, no matter how small….a dash cam will more than pay for itself. Get protected – and help make our roads and communities safer.

If you look at the link, you’ll see what I mean - but the point I was making was actually the police’s readiness to accept a third-party video and to issue a Section 59 NIP from a car DVR. So the video you linked to has the potential to make the Twizy Owner a slam dunk prosecution. But the real laugh is this stupidity was self inflicted!
As for being a saint on the road - pretty good, thanks. But then I have a DVR to provide needed corroboration when (say) an under-taker professes innocence.
