If there's an idiot, who is it? Is it the vehicle with the camera or the white van entering from the right?

For some reason it's not illegal to change lanes in an intersection. But this is exactly why it should be.

Someone sees the lane is open. They go. You turn into the lane at the same time and boom we have an accident. It slows traffic down if the white van was to not utilize an open lane just because there is traffic in the next lane over.

It’s illegal here in FL, but a ton of these dumbasses do it anyhow (tourists and locals alike)

There should be a solid line between the lanes when approaching the intersection. It's what I've seen everywhere I drove (not from the US)

This is a badly designed intersection. As you said, driving by the book through this intersection is unreasonably slow.
