    The bottom one has a give way triangle, that should be a clue.

    Case 1: Which ever of the cars is a BMW. Obviously.

    Case 2: As others have said, there's a Give Way marking. Hopefully self preservation* would as kick in.


    * When I were a lad this was called common sense. Not so damn common these days it would appear.

    . In Val’s original post, the triangle seems to have been “greyed” out. To make things more difficult? Did that happen with the top pic as well? As said, I can’t remember seeing a junction like that is the UK.

    1. All stop, display indecision, all three move, all three immediately stop, random one goes and stops, all drivers look at each other and giggle.......

    2. It's a T junction.

    It's about time that Val told us what he thought the answer is. Then everyone else can shoot him down in flames.

    Case 1 - I've never seen a road junction like this in the UK, so I doubt if there's UK law for it.
    Case 2 - There's clearly a give way marking on the side road (where the motorcycle is coming from)

    So why did you/somebody grey out the triangle in the second pic?

    All answers are right...
    Even with 'priority' it still pays to be careful! Being 'right' doesn't stop crashes.

    Probably seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Nor does being 'left'.
