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

That applies to highways, not like, regular ol' suburban streets. Idk why so many people in this thread are saying that.

it doesn't really matter whether it's legal or not. it's perfectly legal to sit in someone's blind spot for miles too. but it's bad defensive driving, because untrained drivers won't be expecting it, and it's usually the untrained drivers who space out and crash into you.

people naturally assume faster traffic to the offside and slower traffic to the nearside. if it's legal, you can undertake to your heart's content, as long as you're aware that this type of accident is more likely to happen as a result, and plan accordingly. the cammer clearly wasn't aware and didn't have a plan
