U-turn madness! Shocking minicab manoeuvre miraculously misses passing traffic

Updated: Dec 21, 2019

Jaw dropping footage was shared on social media showing a private hire cab performing a shocking U-turn, resulting in a very near miss for one member of the travelling public.

The dash cam video was posted on Facebook by Mark Davies, who was travelling in his company van along an overpass after emerging from the Queensway Tunnel in Birkenhead.

As Mr Davies’ vehicle was seen approaching the end of the flyover, a black private hire vehicle appears on the slip road approaching the end of the overpass.

Seconds later, the minicab moves slightly left on the slip road, before swinging out wildly across the road in front of oncoming traffic. Mr Davies was forced to perform an emergency stop and managed to miraculously avoid colliding with the minicab.

The private hire vehicle continued the U-turn manoeuvre and travelled off in the opposite direction over the flyover.

Mark Davies said on his Facebook post thread: “Only reason there wasn’t a crash is I’m an experienced driver/motorcyclist. More than an error of judgement pal”
