This street this time of day and the intersections before here and after here, is a nightmare, not least now as the 2 L turn lanes on the other side of the bridge funnel into 1 lane that divert thru smaller town streets due to road works ahead.
Police could make a killing enforcing the traffic code every day in those intersections as most seem to forget that you can not drive onto a intersection unless you are sure you can get out of it before light change to yellow / red, so often people pile into the intersection, and then when it turn yellow / red block it for traffic in the other direction that now have green light.

But police dont,,,,, which is just appalling if you ask me.

Today just a simple rear ending between 2 women in front of me, underlining, you first of all focus on traffic in your own lane :)
Looks like simply not paying attention.

Would be interesting to see that from your telephoto camera.

Impatient, the car in front hadn't started to move, so just giving them a nudge to get them moving.

These days it is a legal requirement on vehicle manufacturers that vehicles can take low speed impacts (<8 Km/h) without damage, so why not make use of that feature? :unsure:

As per the video, I also hold back so if something happens in front I can brake slowly. It also gives you a path round without having to reverse first.

Same at traffic lights, I always give a cars length gap. It allows me to drive round should one in front stall. Happened a few times and cars in front are so close they can go nowhere till they can reverse first.
It also means I don't get a face full of exhaust fumes and brake lights from the lazy mob who don't use their handbrake.

A slight facial twitch, a light facepalm, and then laughter which i often have for my fellow countrymen as their intelligence level bewilder me.

There was also a few more comments, but i left those out as they was not flattering, and could conflict with forum rules.

Uh, note to driver, DO NOT START DRIVING UNTIL THE CAR IN FRONT OF YOU STARTS MOVING.

Its weird not seeing them both stop in the middle of the road, get out to inspect damage while dodging speeding cars like in the states :unsure:
