Had a conflicting opinion with one of my friends and i hope someone with similar experience can clarify.
This is the situation.
*The round about is only 1 lane. not 2 or 3 lanes.*
- Car A is at the small road entering the round about. Car B is at the round about but at a distance away.
- Car A entered the round about (entire car in the lane) when Car B is approaching. Car B then cut in from the right to overtake Car A causing Car A to bang/"bua" the side door towards the rear bumper of Car B.
Whose fault is it?
IMO, it's car B. or 50-50. But a friend of mine insisted it's car A and that i should retake my BTT as car B has the right of way. I agree car B has the right of way but right of way doesn't give the green light to bang someone right? In this instance, what is the likely result of the insurance claim? My stand was 50-50. But again, my friend stated 100% fault on Car A. Would be good if i learnt something from someone that has experienced this.
