Multiple Lane Change – Almost Accident
I’m just looking for some perspective. I was driving the speed limit on a moderately busy road. All of a sudden someone cut in front of me who was doing a multiple lane change, who was going significantly slower than I was.
They went straight into my lane with barely any room to do so (no room to actually do so safely with the speed difference between us). I had to slam on my breaks and luckily avoided an accident.
If I hadn’t slammed my breaks in time and they hadn’t then continued their multiple lane change over to the lane beside mine.. I definitely would’ve hit them. I’m just curious, if I had hit them as it would’ve been a rear ending accident would it have still been considered my fault?
