Dangerous driver – level 2

09-07-2014 07:00

A video from England emerged. It shows how a car undertook a lorry, and then swerved into the fast lane and slowed down quickly in front of another car. This could be Britain’s worst driver!

The driver did not know that someone filmed him. He won’t be able to drive for 12 months. He must pay £85 and work 150 hours without getting paid.

A policeman described the incident as very dangerous. He also said that it was amazing that the man injured no one.

Difficult words: emerge (appear), undertake (to catch up with a vehicle and pass it), swerve (to make a quick sideways movement).

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

Where are you from? Do people drive safely there?
