Another is that it's usually better to avoid rolling into a closing gap. Fortunately you seem to have avoided injury, that roundabout can be somewhat confusing (I ride through it most days as well).

It sounds like he did run a red light but the situation isn't exactly clear. Also I'm not sure why you would be signalling right while going following the road. This is NOT a roundabout anymore!

There were only 3 cars, and they had already taken off and gone. Remember that the bike lane curves around a fair way to the left before following around the "roundabout", so it took me some time.
I always signal right there. If you stay in the bike lane, you're almost facing down Royal Parade by the time you've come to cross it, and cars from Mt. Road might assume that's where I am headed (if they are too).
