Dashcam Appeal: Woman 38 weeks pregnant abused in road rage incident

A pregnant driver was forced onto the opposite side of the road into oncoming traffic following a road rage incident.

The victim, who is 38 weeks pregnant, was driving a blue Volkswagen T-Cross when the incident happened on Violet Hill, Mansfield, at 5.39 pm on Wednesday 5 June 2024.

She was in a filter lane going towards Oak Tree Lane when a male driver on her left, who was in a white Audi A3, wouldn’t let her in. Although the vehicles didn’t touch, she was forced into oncoming traffic.

Thankfully there was no collision, but the man then reportedly wound his window down, shouted abuse at her and made obscene gestures towards her.

PC Sarah Clifton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The victim was very alarmed and distressed by this incident.
