the car changing lanes, so the left.

By Yisoonshin - "I thought that the car on the right would be at fault, because since the left lane is merging, the right car should go faster or slower to allow room for the car in the left lane. It's not like you can stop right there. But usually the right lane merges into the left, or at least I thought they do.

By Perau - nope, that's not how it works. the car on that lane has the rightaway to go at whatever speed they like. The car on the left has to wait and make sure it is clear for them to merge.
