To be fair, dash cam guy should have know better to not switch lanes directly in front of an intersection like that. Alfa was still at fault tho.

I saw that clip as well, and agree that an inattentive or hasty driver could misread the oncoming carís signalling.

Iím too impatient to wait for the compilations, and the page isnít set to Faceache members only.

I see this sort of thing all the time particularly at roundabouts. I've nearly been cleaned up a few times by drivers that are just staring straight ahead, they don't even look to see what's coming, they just drive right on through.  :o

Ahhhh, senility, don't you just love it.

I gotta be honest, I don't think my response would have been as polite & restrained as the young lady was, nope, no way.  :-X

Luckily no-one was hurt it looked to be a low-speed impact. If the GTV is uninsured then I have to wonder what is the fate of what looked to be a tidy GTV. Any panel damage to GTV's 105 or 116 is so expensive to fix.
