Actualy the FerrariNot that I'm a too big a Ferrari enthusiast but I really like the 458 Italia.
So I hope the F-150 driver isn't insured and needs to sell his house to pay for the damage
If I were the cop I'd give the 458 guy 100% of the tickets here. The guy in the Ford couldn't have avoided this.Well, looks like the Ferrari had the right of way. It doesn't matter in that case, if he was overtaking where it was allowed or not. The one who hasn't the right of way, must pay attention and keep his eyes open in both directions.
However, there have been cases, when people with the right of way got a share of the fault for speeding. I don't know, if that was the case here.

Ferrari is NB on the road, approaching an intersection, but has not reached the begining of the left turn lane, and traffic is backed up. So at this point, he is in a 2 way, 2 lane, North/South road.
Truck is exiting a parking lot on East side of road, attempting to turn left (South). Traffic pauses to allow truck out (common, at this intersection, as it often backs up 2-3 blocks). N/B lane is stopped, S/B lane is clear to make his turn.
Ferrari guy gets impatient and enters S/B lane, attempting to get around stopped traffic, to get to the turn lane, and not have to sit through at least 1, and probably 2 more light cycles.
Ferrari guy does not see Ford, resulting in a T/C.
These are the FACTS,
Why do you turn every tongue-in-cheek remark of mine into an allegation of chauvinism?Any you know this because you have extensive experience driving one?
Or because they are not made in das vaterland filled with uber-menschen, so they must be inferior right.......
So :Why do you turn every tongue-in-cheek remark of mine into an allegation of chauvinism?
If you must know, I was referring to a recent review in German car magazine Auto Bild, where they tested the VW Amarok against its competitors. Also I know some guys here owning trucks. It's really worrying, then the brake discs of such 3-ton vehicles aren't bigger than my Golf's...
I apologize for obviously having wounded your manhood.So :
Actual knowledge and experience with an F150 = zero
Second hand opinions seen in a GERMAN magazine were they test a (supposedly) GERMAN truck against it's 'competitors' : dominant.
Yeah , base your opinions on articles written by people who seem to not even realise an F150 is not even remotly in the amoraks class (a hi-lux or a navara is for example).......makes sence
When you have driven and e-braked a '3ton truck' call me......
