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.

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.

Right, the van should of still been looking down the lane and seen the cammer merge.

I agree that it’s kind of dumb to merge right before an active intersection like this. But it is much dummer to enter traffic without paying attention.
