For those who try to follow the rules of the road ~ How often do you goof up?
Made a goof up today myself when taking a left turn from the middle turning lane and although I made sure to yield to oncoming traffic I failed to notice someone pulling out into the traffic stream a lot closer then I was looking further down the road at oncoming traffic and turned right in front of him as he was turning onto the road so he technically at that point was oncoming traffic and I was failing to yield on a left turn. Dumb move on my part but by no means a deliberate choice to just flaunt the rules and fail to yield to other traffic like I was above the rules like some cyclists behaving badly choose to do. He hit his brakes rather then hit me and gave me a glare and a short burst on his horn and I gave him an apologetic look which he seemed to accept as I finished my turn.
Been a while since I have pulled a brain fart move like that, especially on a bike since I tend to be more aware and alert on a bike. Just wondering how often the rest of you guys who like me try to ride responsibly VC style have the occasional brain fart as well.
