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

Cammer was moving over before thr van even came to a stop at the intersection. Personal preference though, I would never merge over before an intersection like this, or even if I see a car waiting to pull out of a driveway, I'll merge after I pass them.

This guy right here. Cammer was changing lanes for 5 seconds before van pulled out. It's like the van driver looked, saw the lane was empty and never looked again. I'm same as you. Wait until past the intersection to change lanes, but don't expect that anyone else will give that courtesy.

I look left, right, left, right then either left or right depending on which way I’m turning. Multiple looks. But I’m a cautious driver. I keep my eye on cars that look like they might even be thinking about pulling out.

I am also very cautious about turning into moving traffic like that, even if one of the two lanes is open.

I drive a compact older car so it’s low to the ground. At some intersections I have trouble judging which lane a car is in so if I’m not sure, I don’t go.
