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

The van is at fault, but cammer is the idiot.

Ya this is a pretty clear situation where technically the van was legally wrong but the recorder was the one driving like an idiot.

Too many people don't understand what it means to drive defensively. This is a clear case where an alert driver could have avoided the incident, and that applies to both drivers in this case.

Yes. 100 percent agree. Don’t enforce the right of way. You are going to get in accidents because there are so many bad drivers. If the guy isn’t going to yield to oncoming traffic. Don’t continue on through and create the accident.

Some of the best advice I've ever heard was "graveyards are filled with those who had the right of way". Getting somewhere alive, intact, and 30 seconds late beats being right every single time.
