First video I posted to youtube – close call and an argument with a driver

Uploaded back in 2011… this is the first video I decided to publish. At the time I was riding a Honda CBF250 and my channel has been created more for my own amusement – to be able to show vids to my friends and to have a way of getting back at drivers who were misbehaving.

In this particular vid you see a car coming out from a side street. I travel in the bus lane.  The car goes through the bus lane into his lane and never cancels his indicator.  From my point of view it looks like he forgot to cancel or like many other drivers is just not too quick about it. So I maintain my speed in the bus lane expecting him to continue straight. Instead the driver decides to turn into the next street.  Why? I do not know but he assumes that noone is in the bus lane and without checking his mirrors he starts to turn. I use my horn, brake and swerve to avoid collision… Surprisingly he honks back at me! That made me angry. He fails to check his mirrors and he behaves like I do something wrong? And even if this was not a weird situation (turning into a street immediately after coming out of a street just before it) and he used his indicator properly – it still would not give him the right of way. He has to wait for traffic to pass or stop for him before he can turn! Well apparently this is not a view he shares with me as immediately he started shouting on me.  That pissed me off even more. Have a look at this archive vid recorded with my first proper camera (VIO POV.HD). BTW… The audio was crap on that one…
