@Nova, that reddit thread nailed it. Yes I talked to the driver, she was in worse mental shape than I was by far. She was very concerned for my well being, and mentioned that she is always hearing about these situations happening in the local news, but never thought it would happen to her.
As per the reddit thread and the big question of fault. The blinker decides this according to my RCMP friend, she did not signal. Her exact words were “I had my finger on the signal, but never clicked it in” . Also, from Bike NS;
“Cyclists may pass motor vehicles on the right if it is safe to do so. **Passing on the right can put you in a dangerous position. Vehicles making right turns and lane changes are not likely to expect bicycles passing on the right. Reduce speed and be very aware.”
Was she texting? Not sure…I wondered though.
