We all know we’re supposed to have a good look around before changing lanes on a dual-carriageway or a motorway. But we can all admit that we’re not always as conscientious as we should be.

One way or another, we’ve all ended up in this sort of incident, where a driver attempts to change lanes into a gap that isn’t actually there.

The driver of the pick-up truck here is very lucky to get away with a harmless spin. Hopefully it scared him into being a bit more observant in future.

Just remember, you might not be this lucky.
