TicoGato, that first one with the BMW is ridiculous and stupid. Did you know the BMW was going to cut in front of you to turn left or did it just happen out of nowhere? I think you anticipated it happening?

Good job in catching up to it and getting the license plate and it running a stop sign.

OP was waiting his turn to turn left and the bimmer pulled its stunt out of the blue. No anticipation there, but OP can correct me if I'm wrong.

Was on the highway today and I saw a X5 on the far right lane and I was in the left lane and needed to get into the middle lane. I somehow just new he was going to merge into the middle lane without signalling. And he did, I'm glad I waited or else we would have sideswiped each other. And then I watched him turn off on the next off ramp, without signalling of course. I rarely ever change lanes if there is a car on the outside lane. People are too lazy to signal. If you think about it, signalling is really the only "optional" thing for drivers to do. It is just pure laziness not to signal. What I mean when I say optional is you have to break, accelerate and steer when you drive.

I'm going to report this one to TPS, its really wreckless to make a left turn from the right lane. I have the video (Time stamp is 1 hour slow), license plate number and vehicle description.


Deserves to have his licence taken away for 1st offense. Ran stop sign later on.

I did not know the BMW was going to do that beforehand. I was waiting for the SUV to turn and trying to judge the gap so I could make my turn before the oncoming car got to me. As that was all happening, I saw the BMW inch diagonally into my lane so I eased of the gas and covered the brake pedal to see what was going to happen. He totally cut in front of me and a few others who were behind me.

Yep. I was waiting and he decided to pull a very dangerous move to cut in front.

Yeah. The stop sign roll is nothing compared to the awful left turn he pulled earlier.

You had a lot of time to turn left but you did not. Did you do it on purpose??? To me it looks like it.

A lot of time? He's turning left onto a two lane road with an oncoming vehicle who's also turning right onto that same road, into the same lane.

I had someone honk me yesterday for not going on a left when there was clearly a car about to turn right into a single lane road. Some people are just oblivious.

Exactly, you guys know, not like those stupidly rushed ppl. There's no time for OP to turn left, crazy to even think that. Just lousy and selfish drivers.

I would never ever honk someone in front of me to make a turn at a busy area because one never knows what's ahead and don't want to unduly stress/pressure someone, possibly causing an accident or worse. Lots of sphincters on the road, in a mad rush to go nowhere fast.

Take a look at the video again, he did not position his car for the proper left turn. He stopped and positioned his car at least one car away from where he supposed to be. As I said it looks like OP is not surprised and did not even say anything so he is just trying to piss off other driver.

I am not defending other driver for his actions but clearly there is more here that OP want us to know. He wanted to teach him as well I suppose....

If he would position his car properly the BMW driver would not be able to do this.
Plus it is not safe to do left turns, since your distance increases to cross oncoming traffic.

Can you tell me, according to the timestamp in the video, when did I have "a lot of time" to turn left?

That was my thought process as well. The vehicle turning right has the right of way, and I am also waiting him to clear the turn so that I don't end up getting stuck behind him if he stops right after making his turn to pick up/drop off a passenger. I don't want to get caught sticking the rear end of my car into the right lane.

If you look at the video, the yellow dividing line gets broken up and I position my car just shy of the break, it goes out of view from the camera. The other driver was never directly behind me. If I were to guess, I'd say he was travelling south on Senlac, made a right turn on Sheppard and for some reason want to continue south on Senlac.

Apparently you have one of those 4 wheel steering cars. There's no way you can do the turn if you position yourself like that.
