Point them at the Moron Motorist's threads. Thread #3 is up to 703 pages and absolutely packed with close-pass videos
I have not posted this one before, but I did a Charity Ride a couple of years ago. Not far past Williamtown RAAF Base we had a Council Truck ignore the two trailing support vehicles, two rear escort motorbikes, plus the lead motorbike and lead car, and decide to try and overtake into oncoming traffic.
In this section of the road, the shoulder was all dug up coming past the base, and we stayed in the left lane, then it ended as we went around this bend, and it was a couple of km until the shoulder became safe to ride in again. However, Mr Important in the Council Truck decided that the best place to attempt an overtake of an escorted ride was just as there was a bend and an oncoming car, which is why you hear me exclaim "he going to overtake now?!" when I heard the call come up the line.
