Dangerous driving.

Trina from Blenheim

Crazy driving between Rai Valley and Blenheim. This car overtook twice on a yellow line. I was following a truck but couldn't pass on the yellow line, the road was clear and the yellow line just finished so I indicated to overtake but this car which was two cars behind me flew past me while I was in the process of overtaking and nearly drove me off the road. Dangerous driving. Do you know this car. Shame on you driver. Also so it cross the white line near Canvas Town and got the speed wobbles.
