This.

When you're following somebody on any given road and they start braking or doing anything out of the ordinary basic driving instincts should kick in and tell you to get the fuck out of that lane.

Always make sure no one is in your blindspot and you are in no one else's blind spot. This way, if anythings gonna happen around you, you always got an escape route. This has saved me countless times. A few times (on HWY 1 As well, westbound towards van) I've encountered people in the HOV lane whose car just died all of a sudden and I had to actually speed up, close the gap between me and the stationary car, and quickly switch lanes to avoid slamming into the back of them

Anyways its a shame that someone with such excellent MS paint skills would have to endure such a situation. I hope your paint brush skills IRL are better than on ms paint because you're gonna need them to fix that bumper

You were driving on highway 1. HIGHWAY 1. I take it every day and people on that highway go from 80+ to a complete stop ALL THE TIME. Especially around that stretch, and especially around all that construction. Whether it be for traffic reasons, or an accident, or someone almost hitting someone else, or someone stopping in front of a goddamned cone; if you aren't ready to stop then sure he may be clueless, but you're the idiot. The guy could have wanted to stop to open his fucking doors to ghost ride the whip because his favorite hyphy song just came on. You still have to stop. Fuck I kinda wish that had happened, it would have at least made for a better story.

Really OP you would jeopardize your health to screw over "just another retarded bimmer driver"??? Your parents would be disappointed in you if you really did follow through. Set your ego aside and be thankful you didn't crash into the guy cause 5 years or so down the road, the affects of the collision would've started to show and you would've regretted it for the rest of your life. Take many of the RSers for example, does it look like they are happy that they got medical claim from ICBC after an accident? More than certainly not. This topic really doesn't deserve it's own thread; next time OP just vent out as much as you need to on "shitty dangerous drivers" thread and move on. I'm sure myself, and many other RSers don't feel like seeing this kind of thread anytime someone encounters a retard. Cause lets be honest, VANCOUVER IS FILLED WITH SHITTY DRIVERS especially in Richmond in case you haven't noticed.

And I never expected he would slam on the brakes and come to a full and complete stop.

I guess if you've never seen that situation before or been in it, it's hard to react.
No,

I drive down this specific stretch (Kensington to Willingdon) every week, the second you see pylons or those big bucket style ones you should be switching lanes.

No reason to be behind someone who is on the brakes on a highway.

You shouldn't have been fixated on the car ahead of you. I don't drive that often and even I know that when you see cones of any sort coming into your lane (and the signs warning you to merge beforehand) that you change lanes asap. If you don't know how to drive, you sure as hell shouldn't be on the highway.

my question to OP is, if you saw cones narrow [i'm sure there was also a "lane ends - merge left" sign] , why didn't you just merge right and change lanes again for the exit? Traffic authority isn't stupid to shut down a highway exit and make you exit else where.

Also OP as a tip, I advise you to re-read the "Observation" chapter on the Drivers license book. If you had read it, it would've taught you how to:

-look further than the car in front you
-when you see break lights from the car in front, to check your side and rear view mirrors quickly and change lanes if needed
- look for road signs / construction signs on the shoulder
- expect the unexpected (also known as hazzard perception which is tested during N road test and class 5 road test)

As an additional tip, there is a section in the book that talks about leaving "an emergency space" with the car in front of you so you dont have to come to a full stop right behind the guy or swerve to the right.

ps: I didn't fail OP - not worth the effort.

One slight problem. Most cars especially SUVs have super mysterious secret service style TINTED rear windows, which makes seeing ahead damn near impossible. Best i can do is try to angle my car a bit to the side but even then i am still losing a shit ton of visibility. God i hate those cars so bad, and I am usually patient but when i try to pass them then everyone probably thinks im an impatient ricer

this is to everyone on revscene and not just the op. PLEASE be AWARE of your surroundings and not just whats going on in front of you!! check your mirrors every couple seconds and if you see brake lights going off, signals going off get ready to move the fuck away no matter how far the car is! this reduces the chance of you having to brake and wasting gas and also decreases your travel time and last but not least it keeps you save...

e-high five! Im also the type of driver who is uncomfortable sitting in someones blind spot or having someone in mine, i would rather speed for a few seconds to get ahead or pass someone than getting too comfortable with my escape routes blocked.

if on a highway - change lanes so you get a better view

if on a single lane - drop back to atleast 1.5 car lengths in front of you and drive so that your center hood ornament is somewhat closely aligned to his rear right break lights (if the road is wide enough).

also if it's raining or at night, keeping the 1.5m ahead of you, you can look under the suv for red break light reflection of car ahead of the suv. if day time, space in front is the only thing that'll help.

i'm no guru - but this is what works for me.

Clearly OP was staring at "Idiot drivers" rear bumper and not paying attention to the multiple signs that say:


Or the multiple cones that clearly show the lanes closing. The guys who put the cones out usually let you have atleast 500m advance notice that the lane is closed and a merge is necessary.

It's a hard lesson learned. Be a defensive driver and don't trust anybody. I'd say 95% of the drivers on the road are idiots.
