Dangerous driver - level 1

09-07-2014 07:00

This happens in England. A car undertakes a lorry. Then, it moves to the fast lane. Then it slows down quickly in front of a car. All of this is very dangerous.

Someone films the situation.The driver of the car does not know. He does not drive safely. Police stop the man from driving. He cannot drive for 12 months. He must pay £85. He must work 150 hours without getting any money.

A policeman said that the situation was dangerous. It is amazing that the man injured no one.

Difficult words: undertake (to get close to a faster car and then go faster than the car), lorry (big car), lane (a road’s area).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
