THIS shocking dashcam footage has landed the driver of the orange car in hot water.

A member of the public sent the video to the police after watching the vehicle swerve into the kerb and oncoming lane.

It first pulls out onto Botley High Street and progresses along the A34 past a church, a school and dozens of houses and shops.

The driver has since been slapped with a £316 fine and three points.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Constabulary’s Roads Policing Unit said: “Unfortunately no police unit was on hand to pull this driver over and breathalyse them, but thanks to a member of the public’s dashhcam the driver was identified and charged with careless driving.

“£316 fine and cost. 3 Penalty Points.”

The Echo has asked police for further information on the incident and awaits a response.
