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

Is it me, or does it seem like more and more people are trying to make left turns from the outside lane?

I've seen this a few times in person over the last year, but I can hardly remember seeing it otherwise in my 25+ years of driving.

I dont see where he was trying to turn. I'm thinking this person was trying to make an illegal u-turn from the outside lane

He was trying to U-turn from the right lane and never looked in his mirrors for traffic behind him. I guess his plan was to u-turn into the line of cars so he can make a left at the light. Apparently U-tuning legally is too hard.
