That's not how the California laws work. Left turn unprotected must yield to all oncoming traffic. What if I was an idiot and decided to go straight or I forgot my turn signal on from a previous intersection? An unprotected left NEVER had right of way.
I'm not saying it's legal. Just that I wouldn't have a problem with it. Same as I don't have a problem with a guy rolling by me at PSL+30. By the time he was crossing your lane, you were obviously slowing (and I assume already had your signal on, though I can't hear it over the road noise until about when you hit the crosswalk).

Had a semi truck (lane 2) merge into my lane (lane 1, undertaking all the dumbasses going slow) without using a blinker... :argh:

I really need to get equipment back into my car... :(

Apparently Transformers don't follow lane markers (one lane road turns into two lanes after the light. Most days it's unofficially 2 lanes for ~5 cars before the light). Radio is NPR, can't remember why it was so churchy.

That you @dchemist?

My first attempt at this gig...rarely have a seen such a deserving LEO customer.

Caveat: In an emergency situation maybe an excuse but would be surprised if this was the case. I am putting the rear camera video first so you can see why this dude got pulled into the Not O.K. Corral.

And sorry for the ha-ha comment, just kind of slipped out. Forgive me karma.

I'm actually surprised idiot #2 didn't go to the far left lane. I would have undertaken that one as well.
I purposely gave him enough room to work in case one of the many bicycles he was hauling happened to fall off his SUV..................

Just another braindead driver who doesn't use turn signals and acts careless.

Was hoping to catch more stuff with my RedLine but nothing yet. We shall see what happens after midnight on my drive back......

Just drive around town with the redline you'll be grabbing signals from 3 blocks over :D

Despite giving the turn signal before breaking, this idiot still locks up the breaks and heads into the oncoming lane against another truck.
Glad you got to ride away from that one!
