The driver races past a junction and then cuts back on to the correct side of the road where he carries on speeding as the clip ends.

Mr Robertson said: ‘It was so close to being a serious accident. I was doing 50 and you see the speed it went past at, they must have been doing 70 or 80. Dangerous and inconsiderate.

‘This driver deserves to have his or her licence revoked however judging by the standard of their driving they maybe don’t even have one.

‘These people cost lives and on one of the the most dangerous and neglected roads in Scotland that happens all too often.’

Mr Robertson also claimed the driver later ‘jumped the lights at the roadworks at Three Lochs Road’.

He posted the footage on Facebook with the caption: ‘Hope the police can blow this up.’

Kirsty Marie Robertson commented: ‘Wow lucky there wasn’t an accident.’

And Mischo Biemans added: ‘No time for this s***, must make delivery on time.’

Mr Robertson later replied to his post that the van’s shocking driving continued.

He wrote: ‘The van passed a silver van at the bottom of gatehouse then got stuck behind a McBurney trailer till Creetown then jumped the lights at the roadworks at three lochs Road end hopefully someone else maybe caught his registration number.’

A spokesman for Police Scotland confirmed they were aware of the incident and ‘it has been passed to the relevant department to progress’.
