Video: A near-miss incident with a two-wheeler inside a tech park

My general observation is that people drive/ride more sensibly inside tech parks/gated societies and did not expect such behaviour but I was wrong.

BHPian Meph1st0 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

I had a sort of close shave yesterday. This was inside Tech park and I had turned on my indicators well in advance showing my intention to turn right.

The two-wheeler guy was behind me initially and should have seen the indication. Next instant when I checked my rearview mirror I see him moving to my right. My assumption was that he too wanted to enter the same building where I was going as he would have seen my indicator.

Then I proceed to turn right and see that the two-wheeler person wanted to go straight. He decided to overtake me from the right side despite knowing that I would be turning right and almost came in my way.

Here's what BHPian ninjatalli had to say on the matter:

Both of you were at fault. He for obvious reasons; you for staying in the middle lane till the end. You had nothing to obstruct you to shift to the empty right lane much earlier. Check the Toyota behind you to get an idea of the better (& earlier) lane shift he's doing.

Also, the car in front & behind you in your lane were heading ahead so the biker probably assumed you'd do the same too (while ignoring/missing your indicator); and is probably putting up a similar rant post like yours somewhere else (or in conversations with his colleagues).

Here's what BHPian Thad E Ginathom had to say on the matter:

The biker does not even initiate the overtake until Meph1st0 is already doing his right turn. I make that 100% biker fault.
