Shocking vision has emerged of suspected stolen cars speeding along a major road and nearly wiping out a parked car.

Dashcam footage posted to social media by a motorist shows two cars, a white SUV and a grey vehicle, driving dangerously along Riverway Dr about 5.20am on Friday morning.

The motorist was taking a friend to the airport when the cars came up behind him.

The footage, captured by Peter Parkinson, shows the white vehicle cross onto the wrong side of the road and drive outbound along the incoming lanes.
