1. Clearly the driver in the mini cooper applied the brakes when there isn't anything obstructing the lane. It is also evident that the driver in the mini cooper heavily applied the brakes (look at the shadow of all cars on the road, there you will see the mini cooper shadow slow down at an accelerated rate). No indication of moving to the left lane nor moving over to the emergency lane. The driver of the mini cooper failed to stay in the left lane in a multi-lane highway/freeway over 80km/h as there is no evidence of traffic congestion. The driver in the mini cooper also failed as there is no evidence of overtaking whilst in the right lane (refer to the shadow of the mini cooper) nor was it turning right onto an off ramp. It is also evident that the driver in the mini cooper has put lives at risk by heavily braking on the freeway/highway when there is an emergency lane for use. Therefore I believe it was deliberate that the driver in the mini cooper had heavily applied the brakes with no intentions of changing lanes to allow the Mazda CX-5/CX-9? to overtake traffic. 2. It is evident that the driver of the car cam is driving at and over 100km and the Mazda CX-5/CX-9? is driving faster as it is distancing itself away from the owner of the car cam, also failed to indicate whilst changing lanes therefore failed to communicate to other drivers. It is evident that the driver of the Mazda CX-5/CX-9? applied on the brakes and swerved to avoid collision but being at the speed it was and the sudden slow down of the mini cooper, the driver of the Mazda CX-5/CX-9? poorly judged to avoid collision either through lack of concentration or road skill and experience. If I were 'Traffic collisions investigator' I would charge both drivers on different accounts on where they failed and in this case the driver of the mini cooper should pay for all damages occurred. If drivers were sensible and not naive whilst driving or anything for that matter, we would learn through everyone's mistakes, not just our own and grow faster to make OUR SHARED ROADS SAFE. We don't need to be the law teaching lessons to other drivers on how we should drive, you are better off conducting observations and pass it further to the authorities who deal with this matter accordingly, or live your life and not someone else's.
