Default Welcome to USA

Of course your Honda was 100% at fault.

You almost rear ended the car in front of you, then move to the emergency lane and try passing on the right hand side! If you were driving safely, and keeping the proper & safe distance, your vehicle should not have a problem slowing in time to avoid a collision (even if the other car "suddenly" brakes").

The U.S. has traffic rules that make logical sense, and call for discipline when driving. You need to get used to them. Just like every time I drive in Delhi, I am frustrated beyond limits at the lack of road/lane sense.

It is not like India where you have utterly idiotic rules like the larger vehicle is always at fault, etc., etc..

Sorry if you were looking for sympathy.

o.k., I have my flame suit on for all that may disagree with my comments.

in my view, since all vehicles were travelling in same direction, the best thing would be to go in straight line and hit the SUV, swerving to avoid collision can have deadly consequences like rolling over, hitting other bigger vehicles etc.

let the crumple zones do their work.
