that was just bad situation all around. Where is that thread about drivers licenses and if some actually should be allowed to have one. That left turn attempt by the car was totally crazy, considering there is a blind corner and a double yellow and it's double and yellow for a reason - poor visibility. How many people do you see daily crossing that double yellow to make a left turn into the street, bank, gas station, store etc. . I know someone who got rear ended while waiting to turn left across the double yellow and insurance considered them 50% at fault.
I think the only state that allows to pass in double yellow zone is PA, as long as there is no "no passing" sign. I find that very odd though, why waste paint?
I am surprised he chose to go around it on the left though, putting himself into head on traffic and taking chances that the car will actually stop moving
