Dash cam shows near miss on Oloway Crescent

Dash cam footage shows near-miss on narrow suburban road

SUNSHINE Coast driver Josh Frew has posted dash cam footage of a traffic near-miss on Oloway Crescent. 

In the video Mr Frew turns into Oloway Crescent but is almost hit as a car fails to stop while pulling backwards out of their driveway. 

The front passenger can be seen holding out their arm as if to fend off the oncoming car. 

Mr Frew called the zone a "hazard".

"The reason why I uploaded it to the Community Board was to put out there that they need to fix the roads, or put more signs up.

"Or something to improve it from the hazard that it is."
