Driver criticised - Near miss in West Ashby

May I just thank the motorist who so nearly caused an accident in West Ashby.

I was in a line of five cars following a tractor along the main road.

Cars were travelling in the opposite direction towards Horncastle.

It wasn’t possible to overtake safely, especially in a 40mph limit with a 30mph limit coming up.

Suddenly, a white Audi appeared from nowhere and overtook the line of cars and the tractor, narrowly missing a mini bus coming the other way which had to slow down and pull onto the side of the road.

I hope the driver feels proud of himself.
