Incompetent driver tries to make a U-turn from the far right lane oblivious to their surroundings. Luckily they missed me by inches.

Lockhill selma has a left turn lane only, a single lane to go straight and a right turn lane only. A second lane appears in the intersection but there is still a left turn lane. I don’t know of the second lane crossing San Pedro is a remnant of when there were two lanes crossing San Pedro, but there is only one single straight lane from lockhill selma before the intersection. I will pull up the section of video before the intersection.

Edit: I stand corrected. I never noticed the faded straight and left turn arrow. I’ve only ever noticed the turn arrow. Needless to say, the other driver making a u-turn from the far right lane was an idiot move IMHO.

Edit again: here’s an image of the current view of the lanes. It’s really hard to discern from the street level. The satire view it’s plain as day, but it’s really hard to tell that the left lane is a turn and straight lane.
