I almost got clobbered that way on the bike last year. Traffic was crawling along at 10-15 mph. I'm not one to cross the yellow line, so I waited my turn to enter the turn lane. When I did, there was an idiot cruising down no man's land heading for the turn lane at about 45 mph. I didn't anticipate this as I probably should have.
