Traffic Incident in Plano

I was dropping off a deposit at my local bank this afternoon.  After taking care of business, I prepared to exit the parking lot. 

I had to go left across 3 lanes traveling the other direction.  I cleared to the right and noted a vehicle in the center lane, I looked left and had oncoming traffic but had plenty of room. I pressed on the accelerator on the Smart Car. I remembered that car in the middle lane so I turned into the closet lane. 

The next thing I hear are horns blaring and the see the other car pulling into my lane.  I’m not sure if he started into my lane before I started across or if he wanted in while I was turning left.  He was so close to me that I could not see the front of his car and his hands were waving frantically. 

I made the next left and he followed me, I made a quick turn into a parking lot and while he started to follow, he decided otherwise and pulled back into traffic.

If I was at fault, he has my apologies.  If he saw me coming across and decided to change lanes, there’s not much I could do after I started across.  

Either way, a little courtesy would have gone a long way.
