Several cars reach a four-way intersection at more or less, but not exactly, the same time. A dashcam in one of the cars is recording the incident. The driver of the car filming believes it's his turn to make a left turn. The driver of the car to its right seems to believe it's their turn as well. Watch what happens and see who you think has the right-of-way.

Posted to TikTok by @dashcamofficials, the clip has people talking.
"In Australia you must give way to the right," writes commenter @raildeathday. "Is America the same or is it the left?"
"It's whoever stops first," says @horse_meat9703. "But if people stop at the same time then it's whoever is on the right."
"You all are not going to believe me, but legally the car on the right is correct," writes @420canadiandude. "We all default to opposite directions going at once, but it's 1/2."
"But the car on the right got there last," clarifies @imperialstout.
Video viewer @stephanes461 has a different take altogether. "The road's fault," she says. "There should be a traffic light there."
