The 'dangerous' driving took place some eight years after Gordon was convicted of another driving offence - causing death by careless driving in an unrelated crash. 

The incident, all recorded on his dash-cam, took place on August 5 last year.

Gordon was driving a HGV southbound along the road at about 6.30pm.
