    Better observation by the OP would have likely resulted in the accident being avoided. Wonder how their mot history reads?

    Good grief.

    I'm not sure where I said I was in the middle lane.

    I was on the inside lane (far right) going straight over. His car was outside me (middle lane) which also heads in the same direction as me. As I indicated to come off the roundabout, he decided not to come off there and go across me. Hence damage to my passenger side headlight and front bumper.

    I'm not sure how you've got here.

    So you crossed from lane 2 into lane 1, and collided with the TP. Had you checked your mirrors? Were you signalling?

    No. I didn't leave my lane. I stayed in the inside lane, the whole way round the roundabout. There was no crossing of lanes from me.

    I don't know how we've got here. He cut across my lane, there's literally no debate.

    And had damage to the front of his car, suggesting the other car was more or less level when he did so.

    If our cars were level, then how have I go damage to the front bumper? I'm not following that at all.

    The post reads as if it was you that collided into the other driver now.

    Nope. He strayed into my lane and collided with me.

    Arrrrr, you hit him then - you signaled and tried to come off the roundabout when it was not clear to do so - like wise he tried to travel around the roundabout when there was another car trying to exit.

    50/50 at best.

    I get the train of thought that leads someone to think that I hit him.

    He made the initial movement across my lane though.

    100% with you - without witness or dash cam from your car or car behind then its your word against his, or 50/50.

    I should re-phrase - you both collided with each other. I would never (if I couldn't avoid it) be in a position where I am side by side on a roundabout because of exactly this. You cannot prove its their fault even if it was.
