A dangerous overtake

This driver overtook me a little too fast, and too close.  Section 163 of The Highway Code states:

Section 163:

Overtake only when it is safe and legal to do so. You should:

    • give motorcyclists, cyclists and horse riders at least as much room as you would when overtaking a car (see Rules 211 to 213 and 214 to 215).
  • The video is taken using a wide angle lens, so it is a bit deceptive. However the car passed me about 1 foot to my right, when the guidelines call for 3 feet passing space.
