Just thought I'd share my experience with you guys On the way to work this morning, I anticipated and avoided a potential SMIDSY situation on the freeway. The situation itself was actually scary, now that I think about it. But it wasn't exactly hair-raising since it happened exactly as I've expected. It all started with me noticing the cage 2 lanes to my left (on my 10 o'clock direction) started indicating right soon after they started inching to the right-hand edge of their lane. I'm not exactly sure why or how, but I somehow knew he was going to gun it all the way straight onto my lane. So I checked and confirmed that cage behind me was pretty far away, squeezed my brakes, and sure enough they switched 2 lanes right on top of where I would have been had I not hit the brakes, not even realising how I've just dodged his rear bumper by 6". Moral of the story: Stay alert, stay alive. And peripheral vision saves lives!
