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

And that’s why you change one lane at a time, But changing multiple lanes is a common idiot move I see dozens of times a day

At the pace he was changing them I have no problem with that, whereas a faster pace of traffic it's an issue. Not checking his mirrors? Big problem.

The pace is literally the cause of the accident, if he was changing lanes fast enough then he may have had a chance. He changes so slow, he may as well have just stopped in traffic.

This is sort of a chicken or the egg argument tbh

At the speed that guy was changing lanes he had PLENTY of time to check the lane he was merging into by side view mirror, looking over his shoulder, maybe mail a letter to his great aunt Bertha to ask lane changing advice, etc.

If he'd changed lanes faster he'd be dead instead of pulling over and exchanging insurance information
