I don’t see how the roundabout example is comparable. Of course you can’t blast into/pass people on your left. That’s just straight up wrong. If you extended the radius of the roundabout to infinity you pretty much end up with road rules, where you can’t blast into people already on your left and you give way to your right.
In the previous example, if chicken is being played the person without priority is wrong.
Fyi, when I said I asserted myself I don’t think I was doing anything particularly dangerous. At the end of the day better to stop than to be in a crash.
I know that some drivers are bad to everyone but people cycling are disadvantaged. That’s why they are more likely to be targeted as they are more likely to yield.
I was in a situation similar to the video where a van driver essentially claimed that I should stop and move out the way because he is in the larger vehicle. I don’t doubt many drivers have this bizarre interpretation of the rules and not instead by who has priority based on road layout.
