Last updated at 09:53, Sunday, 27 July 2014
A motorist is to stand trial charged with dangerous driving.
Michael McBratney is accused of driving inches behind another car, colliding with the rear of it, again driving inches behind and then overtaking when the other driver indicated she was going to turn right.
The 20-year-old, of Rockcliffe, near Carlisle, is alleged to have committed the offence on the A75 at Collin, near Dumfries.
He also denied behaving in a threatening or abusive manner towards the other driver and two young people.
McBratney also pleaded not guilty to driving last December without the appropriate licence and without insurance.
Trial, at Dumfries Sheriff Court, has been set for February.
