With an awesome view through the junction, and what is approaching the junction from opposite direction on road I am travelling on, I would have no hesitation cutting off a good chunk of junction to maintain a safe stable manouvere. The above criteria are rarely met in my experience though unless its just a slight fork in the road or similar.

Only one here too. Rather a relief after the days of receiving 7 copies each time. Must admit I haven't opened it yet.

Wonder why I was privileged to receive two. I actually spent a while browsing through one of them.

My favourite for having to take into account others cutting the corner is here - https://goo.gl/a3PzZq, with the view from the opposite direction here - https://goo.gl/mPxwW9 which is only slightly worse view because the camera car is on the "wrong" side of the road.

You can see the path of vehicles turning right into the road in dirt on the road. Looking at the pics I guess the awful state of the road on the left around the manhole cover is to blame? I can see no other reason for cutting that corner more than any other similar one.
