I didn't announce my channel here on this forum yet, because I didn't want to show an old channel intro. But I just uploaded a new "channel intro video" to my Youtube channel and now I've got the chance to share it with you guys
The video below tells pretty much everything, enjoy! I tried to match the clips with the song
Hey.. why do you have the comments disabled on youtube? I was about to comment the last video.. "0:28 Thats the red light district I guess!"
Oh my last video.. I'm sorry but there were a lot of people commenting about the same video clip in the video. It was about a clip where I was blaming a driver while I was making a mistake as well. About 5 out of the 6 comments that were made so far were referring to that clip and blaming me (I know I was wrong as well and I don't have any problems if people mention that in the comment section, but I didn't feel like having to read that 5 times in a row). And I thought there is more to see in that video than the video clip that everyone mentioned so I decided to disable the comments in my #18 video.
Anyways, I looked back at the video and I thought that would have been a funny comment that you wrote there
(For those interested this is the video that I'm talking about. I uploaded it earlier today):

I wanted to change lanes on the highway so I looked in my mirrors and then started changing until I heard a honk and then I quickly swerved back to the lane I was driving. Whoops, I failed to do a shoulder check.. got it on dashcam as well.
That's the comment that I wrote in the "today's encounter" topic. Now you can watch it yourself here at 1:47,

Be a Pro on the Road
PRR Tips to help you become a Driving Pro.
1) Don't wobble in a lane or hug a line, keep centered and steady. Being a predictable driver will save you from a collision.
2) Don't accelerate or decelerate quickly, smooth transitions help everyone including passengers.
3) Stay back from pedestrian crosswalks. It helps other motorists see the pedestrians, i.e. stop at that stop line.
4) Check around the pillars of your vehicle when turning. You might think it's clear only to be surprised by a pedestrian 'hidiing' behind your pillar.
5) When turning a corner, don't cut the on-coming lane. Imagine a quarter circle and make that your path. Being a pro means you don't need to correct your position after the turn to center yourself in the lane.
6) Always use your turn signal whenever changing out of your lane, and give that signal at least a second or two to alert others before actually turning. Too often people think that the signal isn't necessary. Those people should stop thinking what others need from them. Others, whether peds, bicyclists or other vehicles need to see what you are about to do to save themselves from a collision... so use that signal.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Pro Tips:
1) Walking or riding? Well look both ways even if you have a light. Do you really trust your life to a stranger and whatever condition or distraction they are dealing with? Don't assume they see the light or stop sign. After all, they have an entire vehicle to protect them, you don't.
2) Don't step off a curb without looking. Busses and electric vehicles (bicycles too) do not warn people of their approach with sound as there is very little sound generated by their movement or engines.
3) Practice good habits so that if you're ever distracted you'll more likely employ the good habit at the critical time you need it, to save your life.
4) It's called a crosswalk because you should always walk. If you're riding and want to use a crosswalk, dismount and walk. Walking gives drivers the chance to see you and stop if necessary. Darting across eliminates this important buffer.
5) Setting good examples will show children how to behave near a road, and in effect you will be saving their lives... so be a hero and save lives through your example!
