Thank you for your concern. Here's a few quick facts for those who are confused:
1 - Sure, I could have been further to the right in my own lane. That would have been safer.
2 - During the entire incident I remained in my lane and was not hanging over the double yellow. If I had been then I would have made physical contact with the Mini as we passed each other.
3 - The Mini driver did NOT stay in his lane.
4 - What saved me was not the screeching of tires, it was that the Mini didn't cross far enough into my lane to make contact with me until after we passed each other. He was in the process of crossing the line at the moment we were passing.
5 - I am lucky the driver did not panic and lose control of his car any more than he did.
6 - If there had been an accident then the driver of the Mini would have been charged, but I'm VERY glad that there was not an accident because I don't want to be "dead right."
7 - I was there. None of you were. I have two witnesses who can back up everything I've said about the incident.
Again, thank you for your concern. I'm fine. The Mini driver is fine. He crossed the line into my lane. I did NOT cross the line into his lane. I could have been farther to the right. He could have stayed in his own F*CKING lane. The End.
