Quote from https://www.ontario.ca/laws/regulation/900668 :
"If the incident occurs when automobile “B” is changing lanes, the driver of automobile “A” is not at fault and the driver of automobile “B” is 100 per cent at fault for the incident."

- In the second type, automobile “A” is driving in the lane between automobile “B” and a central island or centre of the road. Automobile “B” is changing lanes in front of automobile “A” and the front driver side has struck the front passenger side of automobile “A” in the lane that automobile “A” was in.
- In the third type, automobile “B” has moved toward automobile “A” and the passenger side of “B” has struck the in driver side front of automobile “A”.
