A Victorian driver has blasted a “tourist” for his awful driving after he was caught on a dashcam constantly swerving onto the wrong side of the road.
Paul Dyer was driving back from a surfing trip along a rural road near Simpson when he noticed the car in front of him was swerving all over the road.
“I’m coming back from down south and this f***ing vehicle just keeps crossing over the double lines,” Mr Dyer says in the video.
“So I’ve got me dashcam going. It’s f***ing scaring the hell out of me. I’m thinking who am I going to have to pick up off the road next?”

The video shows the car driving across double lines along the winding road.
Eventually the car stops and Mr Dryer pulls over to the side of the road.
“The guy driving that car is all over the road,” he yells over to the couple that emerge from the car.
“You be careful please. I’m worried for you. Be careful when you’re driving.”
The passengers were filmed repeatedly apologising.
Mr Dyer posted the video to Facebook with the caption: “Victoria has a shocking road toll this year and we must all be aware and look out for each other on our roads!”
“PLEASE do not make any racist comments on this post! This is all about education not vilification.”

So far this calendar year there have been 150 road deaths in Victoria.
According to social media users, dangerous driving from tourists is a common occurrence in the area.
“A lot of the tourists don’t own or drive vehicles in their home countries, getting their license (god knows how) so they can drive while over here,” one person wrote.
“Quite a lot of tourists have lost their lives here because of this.”
“Happens all day and night here on the island too, scares the crap out of me. Good on you for saying something,” another said.
One added: “I witness this all the time. Not just visitors.”
