Police are appealing for anyone with dashcam footage of a dangerous driving incident that occurred on Saturday, May 9, in Sydney's South West to come forward.

Officers from Traffic and Highway Patrol Command's Strike Force Puma have released dashcam footage of the dangerous driving incident and want public assistance as their investigation continues.

The incident occurred southbound on the Hume Highway at Menangle, near the Partridge VC rest area about 6.45am on Saturday, May 9, 2020.

The vision - which was posted on social media - depicts a utility and a small truck travelling in the right lane - with the truck failing to keep left and the utility attempting to try and get around it.

Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy said that while police have since spoken to the truck driver who captured the footage, they are appealing for further witnesses to come forward.

"This event could have quite easily added to the road toll, which already sits at 116 lives lost on NSW roads this year," Assistant Commissioner Corboy said.

"We acknowledge drivers may experience frustrating incidents while they are behind the wheel; nothing is worth putting lives at risk.

"Police are always monitoring social media to identify dangerous driving on the state's roads so that we can take action.

"The fact that we are regularly alerted to these sorts of incidents by members of the public shows that other road users have had enough; they are united with police in their intolerance for dangerous driving behaviour on NSW roads.

"As our investigations into this incident continue, I would encourage anyone who has footage of this event, or even those involved, to come forward to police," Assistant Commissioner Corboy said.

Anyone with information or dashcam footage of this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
