I’d say car on left was at fault suppose to yield always to car on right of you Or it used to be that way in defensive driving

I still remember this one clearly. Two vehicles travelling perpendicular to each other arriving at a 4-way stop simultaneously requires the vehicle on the left to yield to the vehicle on the right.
In other words, if you look right and see a car that stopped at the same time you did, he has the right of way and you must wait for him to clear the intersection before proceeding.
It happens all the time and so many people do not follow that requirement.
