This is the closest I've been to writing off the 220.. luckily the left lane was clear. Shocked

I don’t think you’d have written it off. Surprised it was a Mercedes. Normally these dash cam videos seem to feature Audi or BMW

To me it looked like the op had the view point and ability to avoid another driver who clearly was unsure on what lane they needed to be in and/or was meandering around etc. Yet decided to run it alongside and hold the horn down as opposed to pressing the brake pedal and leaving space for the other driver to make their 'mistake' without causing either car any issues.

Easily avoidable by lifting off the throttle.

Yep, more drama from not lifting off and giving them room. Looks like you were just trying to prove a point.

Looks to me like the OP is as bad a driver as the Merc. If the OP was blind to the Mercs intentions then I say he shouldn't be on the road. Mountain out of a Mole Hill and that 'Music' is truly hideous !!

Sorry Tanim I agree with the others here.
OK, so you may have been "in the right" but here you were driving like a typical German. They'd rather have an accident than ease back and give up their "right".

It reminds me of the old classic "it's better to be right than dead right".

The art of driving is to read the road all around and react to situations before they get critical.

As an aside:
I see loads of these youtube "idiots on the road" dash cam things and so often the person with the dash cam is as much at fault as those they are videoing.

If that’s the nearest you have come to a smash then your lucky I come across idiots who swap lanes on a daily basis.

Good to see the site your getting support from the forum maybe you should by a BMW and then you will be hailed a god

I think the op has received some good feedback. He can take it onboard, disagree with it or ignore it. I don't believe if the op chooses to purchase a BWM he will be 'hailed a god' by default so I would caution the op against any such belief.

The indicator was a clue that the Merc was going to change lane.

The op was actually undertaking so should always be cautious.

Don't be Keith! I know I was trying to prove a point but I shouldn't have reacted like that. Most cars indicate left in that roundabout so I just didn't expect it. Sad
