Angry How come cagers never use their side view mirrors?

Some cockwad on his phone with no turn signal or so much as a look to his mirror comes right into the lane I am already occupying (not the first time for any of us of course). I didn't break his mirror cause I'm just not THAT much of a , but what is the purpose of mirrors if they never use them? Share your experiences with this situation and how did you handle it?

I rode to Mancuso SW for some work done on my ninja... US290 never fails to disappoint... Especially when I am riding in the diamond lane, and some guys decides to merge over, crossing double white lines and nearly cutting me off, lol...

On a side note, noticed single occupancy drivers/caters just zipping in the diamond lane with no concern to look for other vehicles, just because traffic is slowing ahead

I just get out of the situation and go my own way. I may give them a "wtf?" look but I've got better things to do than get off at idiots in traffic. My job raises my blood pressure enough.

although very dangerous, i've had to tap on a window from someone merging, getting too close and me having no way to avoid them. Other times it has been me just getting run completely off into the shoulder of the freeway. A buddy on here actually saw me get merged on by a car on the way to a central meet.The lady and passenger looked at me and swerved more to push me into the shoulder, a few cagers around us even noticed and were like wtf. So i have began to learn to anticipate the bad drivers.

It's an unfortunate truth about riding, you have to learn to ride defensively to avoid oblivious drivers. I've only been riding for 5 years and my riding/driving habits have drastically changed since I started. I don't stay directly next to any cars if I have to.

I've only been riding for a couple years, but I learned very fast to watch to make sure I'm not in some ones blind spot. It actually happens when I'm in my cafe too. ( small car. I miss my truck)

Where are we going? And why am I in this handbasket?!
