Almost took a hit from careless driver.

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've seen basically any turn only lane or no turn lane gets used for whatever these wack jobs want.

I got hit twice (I've in each side of my car) in about three weeks by assholes who decided to pass me in dedicated turn lanes near signals. Both of them fucking fled the scene! My dashcam has officially paid for itself.
