Oh, so that was you, was it?
You might have a BIG vehicle mate, but my car is more expensive.
Expensive equals more high level connections.
Don't forget it.
You're lucky I didn't AK you there and then.
Now, move your BIG piece of trash aside so I can get to the noodle shop.

In cambodia, the #1 big truck which supposed to go first would always be the last to go while #3 goes ahead of #1. #4 would be #1 to go first because it is bad arse car while #2 have to give way.
Here people locals alway think turning right is tgeir right of way, F off especialky when at traffic lights junction where green light is right of way.

In my experience on Asian roads, it doesn't matter who was right or wrong, what counts is who will end up having to pay when the police arrive. It's usually the driver with the less expensive car because less money, fewer connections etc.
