A SHOCKING video of a driver slamming on their brakes to avoid a head-on collision has gone viral on social media
The video was uploaded to Reddit and some users are surprised the Porsche driver holds a valid driving licence.
In the video, the Porsche driver attempts to overtake vehicles by moving to the wrong side of the road.
What makes it more dangerous is the fact it's raining and the attempt is made on a blind bend.

Fortunately, the dash cam car driver was focused on the road and managed to brake hard before hitting the sports car.
