Overtakes like that are potential head-ons, but the factors all coming together at the same time are very rare, so some people will overtake obliviously across junctions an entire lifetime and get away with it, the 'bad luck' not appearing in their path.

Drivers turning left out of junctions and not looking left is a huge problem, many on this forum will unknowingly be doing it. Nearly every driver I sit next to does it.
Driver joining road without looking doesn't need overtaking manuvre for collision. See another very short video of mine here https://youtu.be/JBjZ3LCqstA

Situation you have described happens a lot on the the roundabouts. You can never overtake anything if there are reckless people doing manoeuvres without looking or giving any indication of their intentions. People joining into road if they don't look they may hit other road traffic from back too.

Generally these risk calculations keeps happening in background when you drive, in my next visit through Drift road I will see if this possibility was ever processed or totally ignored.
