Somewhere in America - The Lexus RX driver in this video was clearly not having a very good day behind the wheel, but things certainly could have turned out a lot worse.

In the first near-miss, which takes place at the 40 second mark in the video below, the Lexus changes lanes just after the vehicle from which the footage was taken had moved into that space.

We take it that the Lexus driver must have been flustered by the near miss and the hooting as the motorist almost went through a red light - slamming on anchors at the last minute and narrowly avoiding a collision.

Clearly in panic mode now, the driver then reverses, almost knocking down a pedestrian in the process.

Moral of the story - do whatever it takes to keep a cool head or it could seriously cost you, and those around you.
