Virgin van - dangerous driving

I want to report dangerous driving by a virgin media van. Occurred 9/11/2018 at 4pm on M5 South. Van drove behind us with only 2 metres distance, we slowed our speed to encourage him to allow more distance but he got closer and put his full beams on. We were driving through the 'Keep 2 chevrons distance' section and he was less than one chevron away from us. He continued to drive like this for several miles. 

He represents Virgin and this should be escalated to the appropriate team as dangerous driving is unacceptable.

IF you think it was dangerous driving and want to complain then give the REG No: to local police  .. they MAY have a chat with him...Best bet is 'move on and forget it!' … ZvnK ...

Re: Virgin van - dangerous driving

job for the police. Problem is its very hard to discipline someone in the workplace with no evidence.

What if he said you slammed in your breaks and tried ti make him hit you? it would be the same thing. No one can prove who was right. let the police deal with it if they feel the need to

Re: Virgin van - dangerous driving

Hi Sread

I appreciate you taking the time to get in touch with us and my apologies about the experience you have had with one of our van drivers.

I can log your feedback with the area manager for them to review.

For them to do so can you please reply back to my PM?

I have sent a PM to you that you can find on the top right in the purple envelope if you still need help with this and if you can pop back to me on this that would be great.

Kind regards.

WRONG - If this matter is genuinely under investigation by the police the complainant should not be having any kind of contact/interaction with the suspect person or organization
