A huge semi-trailer has been filmed trying to overtake another massive truck – on a bend, in the rain and crossing double lines.

The risky maneuver was filmed on a highway in Thailand where roads are known for among the worst for deadly traffic accidents in the world.

Recent data from the World Health Organisation showed Thailand had 32.6 deaths per 100,000 population compared with 10.6 in the US and only 2.9 in the UK.

On seeing this clip, it’s not hard to see why.

In the video, a maximum weight Volvo articulated truck is shown overtaking a Hino truck on double yellow lines (same as double white lines in UK).
And it it happened in the rain and without any sight lines to possible oncoming traffic.

The Thai driver of the dash cam vehicle can be heard berating the Volvo driver asking him how he would feel if his truck had hit a tour or school bus.
