Dont know where some of you get the view on speed, the car they passed was doing 35-37 Kph THATS KPH (22 MPH) when they passed it, and they weren't going that much faster than it, still well below the speed limit for the area. Here is a thought, if the car driver can not see, then dont turn. In my part of the world, she is a very clear :turn in the face of oncoming traffic" or "Drive without due care and attention" breach. FFS I really don't get how anyone could think its the riders fault. I also note that the left lane may have had cars parked in it, the road is a clearway in morning and afternoon peak hours but not when the incident occurred.
Certainly it would have helped if the driver had have moved slowly. Point of the matter is - there are stupid drivers everywhere, be aware.
