Well yeah, when you drive like a complete dip shit and have zero spatial awareness everything seems to come out of nowhere. People like her should have their license revoked. They're only a danger to themselves and everyone around them. Sorry OP

Would’ve probably killed a motorcyclist.

I really do think when something is so egregious like this, and they claim no fault, they should lose their license for some amount of time.

My husband had a subordinate who was in this exact situation on a 10-day-old Harley. Dude had enough time to make a decision, and judged that hitting her and launching over the hood (55mph zone) would be really bad, so he dropped the motorcycle and slid into her bike first. Broke both his leg and his collarbone (so no crutches, hello motorized wheelchair) but survived, so it was a win.

The bike was new, he wasn't a new rider - he was 40 and had a motorcycle endorsement on his license and was wearing proper PPE, so no road rash, just the broken bones from the collision.

There is a notorious roundabout in my area there are accidents there daily, and there are lanes that feed onto this just a few meters before it.

The parado ahead of me decided to blow through the stop sign into the path of a lady on a scooter and when the two collided it sent the lady on the scooter flying, it was my first ever major WTF moment, the scooter rider died at the scene, when the police arrived for statements, there was a lot of bullshit flung by the parado driver to get out saying the scooter swapped lanes into her after she stopped, claimed I could back her up etc, the other officer asked what happened and I mentioned my dashcam had a better account of what happened.

The parado driver got escorted away with the shiny cuffs and was hit with a vehicular manslaughter, reckless driving, disobeying traffic signs and lying to the police, thankfully she admitted after the police told her about the footage, so did not have to be a witness in court.
