60km/h isn't really fast aren't most roads around 60-80 km/h? I guess it's in the city so it may be different.

Although he did switch lanes, he has all the right to switch lanes at anytime correct? It wasn't in the middle of an intersection or anything so I don't see why he shouldn't have changed lanes. The other driver wasn't being an aware driver.

When I make a turn I don't just look at the one car coming towards me, I usually scan out the whole area. How many times does someone pop on the right turn signal only to keep on going straight? Furthermore, one car slows down to make a right turn, but that does not mean that the car behind it will slow down as well, it will be coming at speed. I never trust a right turn signal and I always make sure someone doesn't make a lane change and pop out of nowhere. I even do the same thing when making a right turn and one lanes open but the lane beside it has a car coming in it because you never know when someone could switch lanes.

I see this so-called un-safe lane change everyday I don't see what's so surprising about it. People making a right turn slow down and the driver behind them always seems to switch lanes so that they can continue on without having to stop/slow down behind the person making a right turn. If this happened in the middle of an intersection it would be a different story.
