Whoever it is, he's probably dead or in prison now.
I wouldn't be surprised if he/she just got a slap on the wrist to be honest.

What a plonker. Had someone do that to me when I was on a motorbike. Also when turning into a golf club on the Brow in Shropshire near Ellesmere. A few have died there doing the same thing.

Here's a quick question for our resident lawman :-) If the number plate was clearly visible in the clip, could/would the police prosecute without a complaint being made by the owner of the video?

If the license plate is clear, there is a date and timestamp (as there is) and an indicator as to the location of the alleged offence, it can be sufficient to secure a prosecution, however other details such as the location of the offence would also need to be provided.
I do not believe that the police could take a video from youtube and prosecute without additional details such as these, as this detail makes up half of the prosecution case, unfortunately "we saw your vehicle driving like a pleb on youtube" doesnt really offer enough grounds for the CPS to persue it I dont believe...

Crikey, imagine if you were coming out of the side road. You look left see nothing, look right see nothing, look left and begin to pull out, this t**t rams into the side of you.

Was there a police car not too far behind?
Its the only reason I can think for toolish driving such as this, would be escaping the blue lights!
