T-Bone steak was nearly achieved this morning.
I'm not sure what was going through this guy's head. Was it attempted insurance fraud?
Nothing wrong with what the driver did, aside from taking the turn a little wider than usual. Cam driver would've been at fault if there was any contact, it's single lane.

I assume he slowed down because you honked at him? That would be an interesting case because technically it's still one lane at that point so he didn't do anything wrong, he just took a wide turn.
Really that new lane shouldn't appear out of nowhere like that. It should diverge like the left turn lane there.

That's exactly right. I was a witness to an incident similar to this and was told the fault was assigned to the rear vehicle for that very reason - one lane - even though the turn was very wide.

In the end, I agree with the comments here. The driver of the red car was not doing anything wrong. The unusually wide turn was probably because of the odd entry-angle of the parking lot driveway. A 'standard' turn might have taken him into the grass.

This was exacerbated by the road's irregular expansion from 1 lane into 2 lanes, without a clear delineation. The video doesn't show it, but at this point, the road just gradually expands from 1 lane into 2 lanes, and the guy turned right just before the dotted line for the 2nd lane appears.

nothing wrong with the OP turning. He signaled early, just his turn was a little wide. you had enough time to slow down in my opinion.

I agree. The driver indicated their intention to turn right and based on sharp angle of the driveway did a wide turn as to not skip on the curb. OP was impatient.

He turned right. He should be turning from the most right part of the lane he is travelling. OP should have stayed on the left side and waited for the way to clear before proceeding, passing on the right when someone is indicating right is careless.

The terrifying thing with that video is it looks like the driver actually tried to run you off the road. That is some serious road rage right there. Be thankful that he didn't kill you because it certainly looked like that was his intention.

How long were you driving behind him, before passing?
Were you tailgating him prior to the pass?
We were not behind him very long. There is a stop sign before this intersection, maybe 750m-1km from this scene. The guy was going below the speed limit when we approached his vehicle, and passing path looked clear. So that's all.
We did not tailgate him at all, not even a little bit.

I read your other thread, glad no one was seriously injured.

He got mad that we passed him :(
He tried to run you off the road and at the speed you were going it could have been a very serious accident. Report to the police.

Because there are crazies out there!
If I'm approaching a vehicle that is driving slow, I will creep right to the center line and start planning my pass, but if the jerl up front becomes agitated and tries to block my view; I know right away to fall back and wait it out.

I've witness drivers purposely speeding up and slowing dow to block a pass and I'm not risking my life to save a few minutes.

I asked those original questions to see if there were signs that could have been spotted; that the driver was a nut job!
