now.. why exactly did i had the feeling the S5 was the major cause of it even before clicking on the link ? :whistle:
Two months ago, commuting to work on I-495, a major highway, and my dashcam paid off. Thankfully, traffic was relatively light because it was the day of George H. W. Bush's state funeral and most federal workers had been given the day off. I could describe it, but the video speaks for itself:

Audi S5 / Nissan Altima / Ford Explorer
I have my dashcam since two years and its always on during every drive. But the only accident i have seen so far was when i was walking around (already told that story).

Today there was a very funny situation on the parking lot of a shopping mall where i was parking. I was reversing into a parking space when i heard someone honking very hard. I turned my head to the left and saw a Mercedes A-Class reversing while a Peugeot 208 Convertible was standing directly behind it.

I was literally thinking "Don't crash please, you are out of my camera view!". Thank god the Mercedes stopped but there was nothing more left than a hair of space between both cars.

If they would have crashed and my camera was not filming it because it was facing the wrong direction i would have been so terribly mad at the Mercedes driver. :lol:

Here is the situation just seconds before it happened. In this screenshot the Mercedes driver is already almost hitting the Polo and the Peugeot came after the Polo.
[...] Antp, as you are sometimes in France: do you see people often in bus only lanes?

Except when driven by stupid or/and drunk persons, cars and other 4-wheeled vehicles stay out of the bus lanes, in France. The vast majority of people follows the traffic regulations, here, please don't extrapolate a generic behavior from the one of an imbecile :smile:

In fact, the real problem with bus lanes, for me, is that they are sometimes common to buses and (non-motorized) bikes, which can be a bit dangerous for cyclists. All the more as some bus drivers drive fast, due to their empty lane...
The few last times I was in France it was mostly on highways, not in the cities.
In Brussels people don't go too much in bus lanes, it seems. Buses do not hesitate to honk if they can't pass :grin:
Except for turning, when permitted (bus lanes delimited by discontinued dashes rather than a continuous line can be used when turning at the next intersection). There are even many people not even knowing that, it seems, as they stay outside the bus lane for turning instead of using it, which may be more dangerous in the end...
Today i witnessed a crazy accident in Rouen (France). A Renault Driver was driving in a bus only lane and additionally on the wrong side - complete douchbag! Soon a bus came along and honked the shit out of him. The Renault drove to the right side and the bus started to pass him. God delivered instant karma and the bus accidently ripped off the reaR fender of the Renault. I hope the stupid car driver gets at least the shaRe of the accident. Have no photo because my battery was empty. Antp, as you are sometimes in France: do you see people often in bus only lanes?
Sedan smashed in blade of moving tractor on about 30-40km/h. From my point of view it was so obvious they would crash but no one slowed down. Tractor's driver fault.
Last sunday in a car exhibition i attend, a guy backed up his Citroen 2CV 6 in a ( does street light applies even if not in a street ? ) damaging his rear bumper and possibly the tailight on the left side....

the worst part is... he had plenty of space to leave without getting in reverse....
In Germany this rule is basically called "right before left". That explains everything. :sol:

The bus driver said at that junction the right hand rule applies. But as explained in my video this is not the case.

Does anyone of you know what horn i heard from the bus? Its an Iveco Crossway and the horn sounded akward, like an emergency horn in case of a hard braking. I know some bus experts are here, so maybe they can answer my question.
Earlier last week I drove out from a smaller street where I live onto a bigger street with my 240. There was some teenager in a pimped V70 that didn't want to give me right of way but as I was allready out a bit in the road he had to stop and started to shake his fist at me. I calmly stopped infront of him, started to roll down the window to ask him if he didn't know about the 'right hand rule' (you must give cars coming from your right right of way if you're not driving on a priority road).But he drove up on the sidewalk and drove off.

Forget it. Only an "opinion booster" is helpful in such cases:
