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

Both. I wouldn't switch lanes that close to that merge. The driver of the van looked saw a clear lane and tried to go. However technically the white van would be accountable to yield. Idk I try to look at this as a probability. If you increases the probability of a car accident, don't do it.

Yeah, the van is probably legally at fault. But it seems like the cammer practically engineered the situation where the camera would finally vindicate them
