A motorist has shared footage of an encounter on Swindon's roads that saw two different vans almost crash into his vehicle.

The incidents happened at Mannington roundabout this year and videos show a driver, who wished not be named, appear to be cut up twice while navigating Mannington Roundabout. 

The driver, an engineering manager living in Swindon, said they have had to get a dashcam for protection in case of potential disputes in the case of an incident, because of the frequency of near misses like this. 

He said: "I am very aware of the commonality of this type of driving, as even though the road markings (shown in the video) are clear and simple, it is extremely common for drivers at this particular roundabout to ignore them, not stick to their lanes, and cross over without observing or indicating."

He added that he was prompted to make the video public because of a previous article he had seen in the Swindon Advertiser on a driving instructor sharing their near-miss at the same location.

Steve Nichols of Great Western Driving Academy Ltd sent dashcam footage of an incident at Mannington showing his car being cut up by another driver to speak out against what he said was frequent reckless driving. 

In the video, the instructor's car is turning right at the West Swindon junction passing the Fabb Furniture store when out of nowhere a car appears from the passenger side and forces it to swerve slightly and come to a sudden halt. 

Steve said: "This happened to one of our driving instructors on Mannington roundabout.

"Luckily he managed to avoid the collision but the other driver didn’t even stop."

He added: "Unfortunately this is something we see a lot, especially while out teaching.

"We have numerous close calls while other drivers try to get around or ahead of the learners and I know a lot of the other instructors have the same issue.

"We use each incident as a teaching point for our students, asking them how it made them feel and what they would have done in that situation on their own, hopefully teaching them to become safer drivers for the future."
