Hi guys

Not looking for people who will have a go just some opinions.

Over took a car and maybe 1 or 2 more lol in act of stupidity - was running late for work. I never cut the cars up just straight overtake. He pulled up later when I was at work and said you over took me I got you on dash cam.

What can happen if police get involved?

LOL he can submit it but the chances are he wont. That would seem like an incredible about of effort for the police to give you a slap on the wrist, more so, the police are underfunded they wouldnt even chase it up. Trust me, rest easy, you arent going to be tracked down. At least you learnt your lesson. If the police do get involved, you'll get a warning, maybe a couple of wreckless driving points if you are rude to them.

it likely means he will just submit the video to one of those UK dash cam channels.
such as the channel below: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxI...QDzDfdpLFQCShw

However if he feels like it (and the registration plate was visible) he could submit this to the police. Depending on how it looks you could get a slap on the wrist or some points. Some people will literally report every violation they find on their dash-cams so hope this guy wasn't one of them.

What exactly was wrong with overtaking in this situation? Solid white line?

That’s right yeah the coast was clear in the opposite direction so I overtook the bmw in front. Then overtook another car too🤦🏻*♂️ That one I just about made it but I never made any cars swerve or anything. I mean just unlucky the bmw driver had dash cam.

You should have asked 'Did I look cool?'

I wouldn't worry, it's probably just some total belter who has nothing better to do with his life other than stick his nose where it's not wanted

I suppose it could be possible that you are given a fine or penalty points....
IF he reports you
