You can potentially save a life out there and all it takes is for you to not drive like a complete jackass. Just check the lane before pulling into it and you likely won’t end up as the driver in this situation.

A Southern California motorcyclist and motovlogger is lucky to be alive today after he rear-ended a car that cut him off in freeway traffic.
“There were a lot of things wrong in this situation, this whole event could have been diverted if the driver had simply looked before illegally crossing the double yellow into the Carpool (HOV) lane. had let off the throttle as I was approaching traffic, when this happened.”
“I pulled the clutch and hit the foot brake locking the rear tire. I left off to get the bike upright again but it was too late to swerve. The driver that cut me off was in a rental and had bypassed the insurance paperwork. Always have proper coverage!”
