Regardless of license status, P-plater here, the driver has made a cardinal error, overtaking on double lines.

I wish it was that simple. Barton, heading out to Murrumbateman, there is still a curved double line section with clear visibility. Plus side, there are less of the approaching crest dashed line sections that my reaction is no F’way.

So you’re saying you’d still break the law and risk both your life and those of others on the road, based on YOUR opinion of whether it should be a double yellow line or not?? What’s the problem with heeding the road signs, not overtaking then and saving what, a few seconds or even as much as a few minutes in travel time??

I can’t believe some of the responses here.

Everybody bends the rules occasionally, the reality is we have road rules for a good reason, for all we know the section of road in the posted video may have been the scene of a tragedy at some point and hence cautious line markings/speed limits. Regardless of license status, P-plater here, the driver has made a cardinal error, overtaking on double lines.

Not really a big issue here. There’s plenty of similar roads around that are set at a higher speed limit and with broken lines. If rules didn’t exist, you wouldn’t even really consider it a problem at all, as it’s just what happens in other similar places. It’s only because they decided that the limit there should be lowish and the lines should be doubled that it stands out to you. It’s not really like they were going 120kph in a school zone and missing oncoming traffic by 2m…I don’t know why you bothered posting this tbh…you must live a fairly sheltered driving life if this stands out as dangerous to you.

The driver recording was probably deliberately going slow so as to ‘capture’ this random act. Where is his/her perfect driving before or after this event?

Bullshit. That road is notorious for idiot drivers going 80+. This moron would’ve reached the next intersection about 5 seconds before the car with the camera. Hardly worth the risk.
