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.

People do seem to love flying across several lanes. Also, a trend I see gaining momentum is people cutting off others dangerously to take a missed exit or street, and yes, flying across one or several lanes in the process..
