One for the Singletrack driving gods:
I was approaching this roundabout today (StreetView) in the left hand lane, intending to take the second exit.
On approach I see a car on the outside lane of the roundabout about to turn off, and a motorbike in the middle lane next to the car.
Both are a safe distance away, so I pull onto the roundabout in the outside lane.
As I pass the first exit I realise the motorbike is now on my right hand side and is about to go in front of my car to take the exit.
Emergency stop - biker is already in the "oh shit" position, hand out ready to bounce off the car - but he makes it round me and carries on his way.
So I'm now ruminating on it, trying to figure out what went wrong and what I would do differently next time.
Being a cyclist I do try to watch out for and take extra care around bikes (pedal and motorised) but this time I messed up and nearly clobbered someone.
I assume that the biker thought I was taking the first exit with him and he was aiming for outside lane on that exit (which has 3 lanes).
So perhaps my intention to take the 2nd exit wasn't clear enough from my road position? (I wasn't indicating at that point)
I should also probably have clocked him in my wing mirror before he appeared in my field of view, but my focus was on the traffic joining the roundabout from the 1st exit.
Any other thoughts or comments?
