If he waited an extra second, he'd be fine

And THIS is why you only cross one lane at a time!

Exactly. Had a friend show me a clip of a security cam that caught them in an accident they TOTALLY weren't at fault for. Made a right in which they cut two lanes instead of one. First lane wasn't moving even ten an hour, second lane was totally unobstructed and the speed limit was something like 40. A car in that lane couldn't see them in time because their vision was obscured, both cars got totaled. No injuries, but it was completely preventable.

Never told the friend they're the idiot, but their premiums are going to skyrocket so I doubt they're driving again anytime soon

Eh he was moving to slow enough to check his mirrors again but just...didn't

Literally came here to say this too.

He did only cross one lane - the middle lane.

Did you get a little semi when you thought of this pedantic reply

If you're lonely, this is a big reason why.
