Has anyone else encountered a motorist who assumed a cyclist wanted to turn, when they weren't going to yet? I know I will get a 'What the' kind of reaction to my question.
Today, I was in the outside lane during PM rush on 40MPH road, everything was fine. I crossed over(there were three lanes on each side) to the inside lane. After I crossed over to the inside lane in preparation to get into a left turn-only lane, the motorist in front of me(yes, in front of me), kept shouting from her car to get off the road, even though I was behind her. She kept intentionally weaving in the lane, motioning with her car to turn off at the nearest left-turn. Even though the left turn I had to make, was not even close yet.
I wish had a GoPro Hero HD3 video to show. Because I still can't believe that it happened.
