If my drawing is not clear enough then tell me, and I will attempt to redraw it.

But what I would like to know is who has the right away in this situation.

Assume that I am in a vehicle moving along the red line and the other person is in a vehicle moving along the blue line...

Here is a little backstory...
School releases at 3:11 P.M.

Everybody rushes to get to their vehicles and everybody is a total ass. I normally let one car go and then continue driving. But this particular person is a real ass to everybody and never lets anybody out. So I decide that I am going to just keep going the path and not let him out. He decides to try and cut in. So I try to block him, but I decide that it is not worth us hitting each other, and let him in.
We both exited onto Jaguar way.

If he had hit me, is he at fault? If I had hit him, am I at fault. Also keep in mind that we are in bumper to bumper traffic, and the collision would only occur at a few mph.

The way I understand it... I have the right of way, and he has to merge into my lane. If it helps, I like in Oklahoma.

And sure I could have let him in, and I normally let everyone in as I said earlier. But this guy is getting on my nerves.

Depends on who pulls out first and is already moving.

Id think that the red line has the right of way, the blue one should stop for any traffic.

I was already moving along the red line, and he was trying to merge into my lane. He would be pulling out in front of me.

Yeah, If you were already driving along the line and pulled out you would have the right of way. Its no different than stopping at a red light and trying to make a right turn on red, but the other side has flowing traffic with a green light, You would have to wait or you are pulling out in front of someone.

Red has the right of way, maybe not the right away...

It looks the same to me as if it were a T-junction. The through road has the right of way and red is on the through road.
If he couldn't see past the cars on his left and turned out because he just had to go for it then that's understandable, but if he turned out without looking then he's just an ass.

It just looks to me like there should be more road markings here.
In the UK we tend to have arrows all over the ground, lines delineating lanes and plenty of one way systems in car parks like this.

But when it comes to who is at fault the right of way doesn't mean much.
Right of way is only meant to tell drivers what they are expected to do by other drivers, not what they absolutely by law have to do.
If he pulled out in front of you and you hit him it would be less to do with who had the right of way and more to do with whether or not you had time to stop - I think.

We both would have time to stop, as I said it was bumper to bumper traffic. I just did not want to let him in. And he was not going to stop for me to pass.

Also thanks for your response.
