I am more appalled he didn't.
It wasn't like this was a controlled intersection with lights, this was the people going straight get full priority and you just wait till the traffic is clear to make your turn.
I might bring this up with the police because it concerns me that he wasn't ticketed. Screw the impartial policy they have - that was flat out dangerous.
If there were people there? I don't want to think about that.
And I think I only hit him at 30-35, clearly didn't have the time or space to slow down fully; and this is the damage caused to the cars and personally I'm hurting. I can't imagine if I hadn't had time to turn the wheel or stop.
