I'm guessing the OP was thinking more about the v late indication later in the video...There is a sign on the pavement telling saying the road narrows. The left lane has a big arrow painted on it showing left turn only. The lorry was in the correct lane to proceed ahead, anyone in the left lane trying to go straight was in the incorrect lane.
You are correct, didn't see that part. I could see the indicator flashing so it was before the op passed, but yes very late.I'm guessing the OP was thinking more about the v late indication later in the video...
I'd not bother with the arm flapping - I've tried it and you still can't fly over obstacles.You are correct, didn't see that part. I could see the indicator flashing so it was before the op passed, but yes very late.
Maybe the op should have flapped his arms a bit more? Seems to help around Aldwich?
From the helmet cam you can see buses in front of the HGV - in the same lane. The HGV is not indicating on the approach to the slowing and stopped buses and is on the brakes - this would have understandably led the OP to assume the HGV was stopping behind the buses. However, there was a visual cue just before the indicator comes on - the brake lights go out. I suspect the OP just glimpsed this and was then on the brakes.I would have said that overtaking at a pinch point when (assuming) you couldn't see directly in front of the lorry, was more inconsiderate than the late indication.
Perhaps I was a bit rash presuming the HGV wouldn't suddenly pull out to the right without indicating.
