How have you almost been "taken out"?

Mine was today on NASA Rd 1 (NASA Parkway for you young folks), an old Ford Explorer pulled out of a parking lot across moving traffic (5 lanes wide) and was headed to the center turn lane as I was closing at 45 MPH. I was on the brakes and luckily the moron stopped before entering my lane. The passenger looking at me had her hands on her ears. I'm not sure what that was supposed to do. Luckily oncoming traffic from the other direction was coming off a red light so they were just slowed and blocked. As I glanced back, the idiot driving the Explorer (with his ball cap on backwards -go figure) used the fact that his ambling out into oncoming traffic had stopped all 5 lanes to force his way into a thru lane.

I had a jacked up truck turn into my lane because he could not see me when I honked and he swerved back his girlfriend or mom or many cousin was crying her eyes out ....

Had a old lady pull out right in front of me before.

Best for last

doing 140 km/h on the highway 20 over the limit, a group of motorbikes ( biker gang wannabes ) pulls onto the highway then one of then pulls into the far left lane where I am then proceeds to slam on his brakes while i am doing about 130..... almost kissed his rear tire. He had a pretty stupid look on his face. Good thing for Porsche brakes!

Once or twice, and each by an elderly lady around Houston

Was just down on NASA Rd 1 this weekend looking at some sailboats.

Last time "almost" taken out
