THE moment two cars barge into each other on a confusing roundabout has sparked an online debate about who’s to blame.
A small white hatchback and much larger black saloon crash side-on as they try to navigate the roundabout near Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
Motorist David Blandy prompted a fierce online debate when he posted the footage with the caption: “Collision on the Viaduct Bridge, Sheffield. Black car or white car to blame?”
The issue causing the debate is over lane discipline, with most comments arguing over who should have remained in their lane.
Some have suggested the white Mazda 2 on the left was in the lane for the first exit on the roundabout and moved into the path of the Audi.
However others have proposed it was the Audi who changed lanes, causing the accident.
At the start of the video, the white Mazada 2 is seen driving in the left lane with a black Audi A4 a few metres ahead in the centre lane.
Both lanes allow vehicles to go straigh ahead. As the two vehicles enter the roundabout, the white Mazda begins to overtake the Audi as they pass the first exit and they hit side-on.

Helen Bason said: “White car can go left or straight ahead which is what it was doing, black car was obviously attempting to change lanes.”
Rich Atkin commented: “I read white car’s fault with that, he has no straight on.”
Kevin Spike Toms said: “My opinion for what its worth, white car at fault. the black has the lane lines the same distance from his near side continuously until impact.”
