While we all have stories to complain about other drivers, have a think about this situation. Not my near miss, but I certainly watched one. I was heading home from a look at the Formula One race, sitting at a red light, in the right hand lane of Kings Way heading North, on the corner of Albert Road, at the North East corner of Albert Park. I had a right hand turn lane to my right. In my right mirror I see a motorcycle hammering up between waiting cars, working really hard to avoid hitting mirrors, since there really wasn't enough space to filter at that speed. No problems, I think, I'll just say G'Day when he pulls up beside me, since I am in the centre of my lane, and there is plenty of room for him to stop without blocking the right turn lane. Nup. He arrives at the intersection, and shoots straight into it. He sees a car turning right from Albert Road to the left, and countersteers hard to the left to avoid becoming a hood ornament. He looks over his left shoulder as a he countersteers. Then, even though there is another car turning right only a car length behind the first, he countersteers hard to the right and through the gap, then shoots off down the road at speed. I thought he had admirable control, in that he didn't pull a very big wheelie as he accelerated away. I can only assume that he was trying to get away from someone, and it could have been another bike which turned up at the intersection very soon after he left, which filtered to the front, and turned left as soon as the lights changed. If his life or licence wasn't in danger because he was being chased, then they certainly both were from his riding. He was a bloody idiot, and very nearly became a bloody mess on the front of a car. Maybe he would write up his near miss differently, but I hope there are only a few riders who ride like that in traffic.
