So today I went for a ride on my Z100, and soon I found myself in slow traffic; 70kph in an 80 Zone. Infront of me was a Civic, and infront of the Civic a slow moving 30 year old van. I was waiting for the Civic to make a pass, but after a few decent passing opportunities the Civic still hadn't passed, and by now there were dozens of vehicles behind me.
So I waited for the next straight stretch and went to pass the Civic and the van. 2-3 quick downshifts, and I was flying by, Yoshi Pipes screaming.
Just as I was exacly beside the Civic, he also goes to pass, and just radically swerves over, no signaling or shoulder checking. He literally came within inches of me without seeing me. My instincts took over and I accelerated hard while avoiding him.
That just goes out to show how dangerous passing multiple vehilces really is. Honestly, when Im driving my car and I go to pass somebody, how often do I shoulder check??
If he would have used his signals this near accident would have been avoided, as I focused on his signal lights right before I passes.
Hope this teaches people a lesson...
Safe riding people!!
