Your video looks typical of the sort of thing that I often see but surprised that the driver was actually indicating this time... Although it's a shame he didn't bother to check that his path was clear before puling out.

Been filtering thru the usual crappy hotspots on M25 (anywhere clockwise from JCN 11 to 16 basically) and it was hair-raising as usual: some drivers see u coming and make space  :062: , others just don't seem to be aware of anything outside their little bubbles but the really scary ones are those who clock you and deliberately move across to block your path  :232:

In days gone past it used to be a Vauxhall Cavalier driver, now it is BMW Man.  How times have changed.

Wow that's clever, this forum has an automatic swearword detector?!  I put a word meaning excrement and it added asterisks automatically  :172:

Looks like my favourite every day game .......... "Who's gonna try kill me today"  :001:

When lane splitting or filtering, assume there is always one eejit out there who won't see you - that way you are riding ready for said eejit to make an appearance   :028:

He was indicating before he moved so thats a bonus. I look at gaps in each lane and if theres space for a car to switch lanes then expect them to do it.. thats just about the time i stop filtering because while ever they have nowhere to go then they dont try
