Then why did you honk like a maniac? You saw him about to make a turn,, and still chose to accelerate hard. You are the Ragu here, knowing you will be in the right if you hit them but in reality your actions are against common-sense. If a cop had seen you and you'd been in an accident, you would be 50% at fault for making unsafe lane change.jason9945 wrote: ↑Dec 1st, 2012 5:07 amUhhh. I stopped way back from the left turning cars. He had full view of my right turn signal which was on the second the right lane was clear. I was almost stopped, so of course I'll have to accelerate to travel on a 50km/hr road when I wasn't moving before. I didn't come anywhere close to hitting him.
Thank you. You have shown your true face. Justifying your wrong actions because some politicians decided to leave the situation vague and up to the officer's discretion. Even if the handbook is telling you it's wrong, you demand to know the code in the law. The law says do not make unsafe lane changes. You clearly saw that car start their turn, hence making the lane no longer clear by the time you reach there, but you still accelerated to beat them and make them stop. You are an ***. Are you a lawyer/son of a lawyer by any chance?
Yes, when making lane changes you have to make it in a safe way. You did not. And those people will get the cop interested and will follow them so they nab them for something else. You have no common sense.

The guy in the other car did something wrong, then went psyco because of it. He was scared too, we both went the same way on the parkway for about 10 minutes and he didn't take his eyes off my in his rear view.
What wasn't perfect?
I stayed back from the left turning car, waited for traffic to clear, signalled right and went right, completed my lane change before entering the intersection. Then I started to accelerate up to the speed limit and crazy man comes along.
He didn't go psycho because of it - he want psycho because you honked incessantly at him.
So what if you were 2-3 cars back. He started to turn before you started to change lanes. That, a person with common sense, would mean the lane you are about to merge onto is no longer clear. He already has to worry about so much making a turn, from all sides, and you expect him to watch your every move, and the fact that you are going to go on his lane after he has already checked the lane to be clear? Wow. I despise people like you.
