SHOCKING dash-cam footage exposes Britain’s most idiotic motorists on the roads.
Dutton Police have released heart-stopping near-misses involving some of the UK’s worst drivers.
An astonishing clip shows how one lucky driver came within a second of being crushed between two lorries while overtaking along a country lane.
The reckless driver was later handed a £660 fine, ordered to pay court costs of £90, a victim surcharge of £264 and handed six penalty points on their licence.
Another shows a brazen motorist overtaking on the opposite side of the carriageway on the A5 near Oswestry, Shops., before narrowly missing an oncoming vehicle.
The driver was given three penalty points and a £100 fine.

Another moronic person, who was fined £660, can be seen overtaking a bus on a roundabout which almost resulted in him smashing into an oncoming car.
The clips have been released by West Mercia Police after hundreds of drivers were prosecuted for a string of motoring offences as part of an ongoing crackdown.
Operation Snap allows members of the public to upload dashcam footage of dangerous driving to an online portal where it is reviewed by officers.
A West Mercia Police Operation Snap spokesperson said: “Operation Snap complements the work already being done by police officers on our road network.

“It allows us to raise awareness that drivers behaviour can and will be called to account at any time.
“People take risks on the road through fear of not getting caught and a lack of consequence.
“Operation Snap is a tool that can be used by all road users; drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, horse riders and motorcyclists.
“With the help of other road users, this technology will deter people from making poor choices on the road, improve behaviour and help make our roads safer for all.”
The force said in December last year alone it had 310 video clips uploaded to the Operation Snap portal.
Of these, 139 were sent for prosecution, while 84 resulted in either a visit from an officer or a warning letter for the driver.
It comes after a “stupid” driver was filmed breaking the no.1 motorway rule as he tried to find a shortcut to avoid traffic.
