Those who viewed the video were divided in their opinions over who was to blame.
Some said the driver who switched lanes at short notice was at fault, leading the second driver to collide into them.
Other viewed the road markings, suggesting the driver switching lanes ought to have exited the roundabout.
A person said: ‘If you look carefully there are these massive arrows on the road, dash cam was in correct lane.
A second added: ‘That will teach him how to use roundabouts. Well done camera man! I would do the same.’
Others thought the driver with the dashcam ought to have slowed down for the motorist in front to swap lanes.
The Highway Code stipulates drivers should never switch lanes on a roundabout without indicating.
The guide states: ‘If you use them you should keep to the left and watch out for vehicles crossing your path to leave or join the roundabout – signal right when riding across exits to show you are not leaving – signal left just before you leave the roundabout.’
