Instead of saying "Dont Dont", couldnt you just have changed to the left lane and avoid a possible accident with the pick up?
that kind of idea causes pileups. You don't have time to check your mirror, do a shoulder check, signal and change lanes before rear-ending the car in front of you. You're best bet is to slow down or slam on your breaks unless you are 100% sure no one is in the lane besides you.

Looked like the bus stopped at the red and then decided to run it

#HandleBarCam

Here were see a motorist improperly yielding to me on a bicycle. This motorist is either ignorant or just trying to be nice. But their actions are greatly dangerous.

I was cycling and waiting for a good opportunity to turn left. I was signalling left with my arm, and for some reason, the oncoming Nissan driver slowed down to let me turn.

The Nissan driver had the right of way and should have just kept driving. I waved the Nissan driver along, with the intent of turning left after the oncoming lanes were clear.

The Nissan driver's actions were incredibly dangerous and could caused a traffic accident:
1. If I had actually turned left when the Nissan driver improperly yielded, other oncoming cars in the next lane could have rightfully passed the Nissan, and then T-boned me on my bicycle.
2. Because I had to wait for the Nissan driver to move along, and for the cars that driven up behind the Nissan to also pass, I was there in the left lane, exposed to more fast-moving cars from behind, increasing my own risk of getting hit, and also inconveniencing other motorists.
3. The Nissan driver could have been rear-ended as a result of stopping in the lane for no good reason.

I'm lucky I wasn't injured in this sequence.

Agree with your assessment of the situation, with your arm stretched out to the left he might have thought, incorrectly so, that you were trying to waive him down.

You are brave to be riding a bicycle on that street :-)

Yep, pretty ballsy to make a left where there is no marked left turn lane on a that street. I'd personally feel vulnerable. Best of luck! (I'm being genuine)

Me too. My personal strategy in a situation like that is to wait at the right curb until traffic is clear in both directions and then make the left turn.

Came across this POS this morning on my way in, no care for the stop sign, that is in front of a public school and right beside a crosswalk, for that school.

I hope they got where they were going faster. Thankfully no kids crossing in the area.

What's make it even more horrible is that you didn't stop and provide assistance. Even more horrible is that the guy checked on the CRV driver first. And much more horrible is that others just watched and drove away.

Call 911 was urgently needed instead of coming out and didn't know what to assist.

Terrible accident, really hope the biker is ok. Good on the woman that went to help, the rest of the bystanders were probably just in shock. Driving a motorcycle anywhere in the GTA is just too dangerous.
