Almost every driver can relate to this frustration… but maybe this motorist’s gamble will be a lesson for your impatience.

This car driver gambled on overtaking a lorry while towing his £10,000 vehicle and almost immediately regretted his decision.

The driver had been stuck behind lorry driver Nick Townley for several miles after leaving the M5 in Somerset, England.

He finally gambled on passing out Mr Townley at a set of lights, but miscalculated how narrow the road would be.

Losing control of the trailer at 50mph, he ensured the caravan won’t be used for any family holidays soon.

Mr Townley, who has been a driver for 24 years, caught the incident on his dash-cam.
