The driver of the other vehicle. You were moving and they were stationary, hence they didn't yield right of way to you. Chance are, the parking space was private property, so a citation wouldn't be issued. Laws in your state may vary.
Yes you can but the police officer must be certain that you have been driving the motor vehicle on the public highway ie he has followed you there or your vehicle has been involved in an accident and failed to stop and you are the owner of the vehicle if you were not the driver you must inform him who was
If a driver hits a fire hydrant on private property, then he or she is to blame. The hydrant is a stationary object that the driver should have been able to easily avoid. It is likely that, even with insurance, the driver will have to pay for any damages.

Police will write a "no fault" report since accident is on private property (in my case, parking lot at work) 6. If police asks you and other driver to "work it out between you" as your rates will go up - be very cautious!!!!! 7. Call… Read More
Daughter backed up over halfway, other driver came around corner and hit her, kept going and caused damage to her own vehicle. None to my daughters. Appeared as though the driver attempted to go around rather than stop and wait. No tickets issued. Police did not talk to witness that backs facts up, but stated on the report my daughter hit her. Happened on private property.

Vehicle & Transportation Technician Specialist is another word for a truck driver.
Can a tow truck driver come on your property and take your vehicle if you tell him to get off your property?
In most states if they have a reposstion order they can
It is illegal to abandon a vehicle on a public motorway, as it is a serious threat to the safety of drivers. Abandoning your vehicle on someone else's property will probably result in the vehicle being ticketed and towed, and the owner/driver being fined. If the vehicle is abandoned in a secure location and/or looks suspicious, it will be seized by police to be searched, and the driver may be detained. You may only abandon… Read More
If you have your CDL learners permit can you drive on private property without anyone in truck with you?
You won't get ticketed on private property, but if a claim has to be filed for an accident which ensues from an unlicenced driver operating solo on private property, that insurance company may refuse the claim, and even refuse to further ensure that truck or fleet.
The definition of lease is to cover the property, services or land for a certain period of time, to another person. A lease on a vehicle, for example, can last 1-5 years, at which time the driver does not own the vehicle, but the company provides services for it, and at the end of the lease the vehicle is returned to the company.
Will insurance cover your damages from an accident if an unlicensed uninsured driver was in an accident on private property?
It is highly unlikely.
Auto insurance typically covers the car, not the driver. So, if you have insurance on your vehicle, but you drive another vehicle that doesn't have insurance, you are not protected by your policy if you have an accident in that other vehicle. However, if you have insurance on your vehicle, and you lend it to a driver (from another household) who does not have his or her own insurance, they will be covered by your… Read More

Anytime a vehicle is departing private property and entering a road, it must yield the right-of-way to traffic. The liability is with the backing driver until the backing vehicle is fully into the road. The vehicle already in the road must still take all prudent steps to avoid a collision where possible. If either vehicle is operated in an unsafe manner, the liability will be assigned accordingly.
If you or the other driver makes a claim yes.
If an uninsured driver backs into a parked car that was backed in making it less visible to the driver on private property and the driver nor it's passengers could see the car what happens?

Pay the owner of the car you hit and accept responsibility for your poor driving, and stop trying to blame this on how the vehicle you hit was parked… Read More
Damage to private property and high risk of injury on both the driver and occupants of the house.
If an uninsured driver of an insured driver's car has an accident caused by another driver what will happen to the uninsured drivers license?
If the uninsured driver had the permission of the insured driver to operate the vehicle then NOTHING will happen to the uninsured driver. In fact, in this case he or she is not an uninsured driver at all. The insurance follows the vehicle first, the driver second.
You must not accelerate, and if safe to do so, slow down a little.
Technically, no. Federal law states that you must have at least a CDL permit to even so much as be in actual physical control of a CMV. Now, the police aren't going to ticket you on private property for it (but don't go onto any public roadways). However, if an accident results, the insurance company can deny the claim on the basis of an unqualified driver operating the vehicle.
Typically, it will be required. While you may not get a ticket for operating a CMV on private property without a CDL, the insurance company may reject any insurance claim if an accident or incident results with an unlicensed driver operating the vehicle.
Every where you drive or go you need driver license to go or else charge $$$$$$$$
Whose fault - my neighbor backed out of her driveway and hit my car while I was driving in the back lane Although I stopped and honked Now she claims that she was looking that I hit her.?
In any situation in which a vehicle backing out of a property hits another vehicle, the driver who was backing up is always at fault, barring speeding, impairment, or disregarded traffic controls/signs on the part of the driver who was on the road. Added: I concur. The vehicle operating in reverse must always yield to any other vehicle. The charge I am familiar with is "Backing Without Caution."
The driver, as he's the one who caused the damage. The driver of a vehicle, whether a juvenile or the owner of the vehicle, damages city property with a vehicle, that driver is responsible for damages. Should it go to small claims court, you may have to sue both the parent and the juvenile, as some states vary with regard to parental responsibility.
Yes pocket bikes can be operated in the state of Nebraska, however only on private property. If operated on public streets and property the driver can be fined and the bike will be confiscated.
Pretty much, yes. While the law won't come onto the private property to hound you for driving it on that property without a CDL, the vehicle's insurer won't act on any claim filed due to an accident involving an unlicenced driver.
Not likely. Some sort of criminal offense must take place before the state can impound your property. Usually, in a traffic stop, this is acknowledged by the ticket, which in essence is a summons to appear in court. It is possible in the scenario above if the driver of the vehicle is arrested rather than issued a ticket. Without some action by law enforcement against the driver of the vehicle (provided only the driver is… Read More

if another driver makes a mistake... etc
What can you do if you are hit by another driver and got their license number and the police charged them but their insurance will not pay because the owner says a friend was driving the vehicle?
It shouldn't matter who was driving. The insurance company is responsible for the VEHICLE not the driver.
yes, as long as she is driving on private property, i.e. a parking lot, then the police cannot ticket a unlicensed driver.. they are typically not inclined to ticket an unlicesed driver in any case, as long as they are in the car with a licensed driver.
Ultimately, the driver is responsible for everything that happens while the vehicle is moving. The DRIVER is supposed to verify that the vehicle he is driving has insurance. I have been in this position, as the owner of the vehicle. And trust me it is the owner that gets the huge fine.
Property damage and liability coverage are two different things and provide different coverages entirely. Property damage coverage on an auto policy covers the named insured on the policy. The named insured must be the owner of the vehicle as you cannot insure a vehicle you don't own. Generally insurance companies allow immediate family members who reside in the home to be included on the policy as long as they are listed as drivers on the… Read More
Who is at fault when one driver side swiped another driver in a parking lot and the vehicle that was side swiped was on the wrong side of the road?
The vehicle on the wrong side of the road will more than likely be deemed the majority if not all at fault.
No. Uninsured motorist coverage protects the owner of the vehicle which is damaged due to the actions of an uninsured driver of another vehicle (or damage caused by a hit-and-run driver). I think what you are asking is known as a 'permissive' driver - someone who was driving another person's vehicle with the owner's permission, but who is not actually named on the policy. The answer to this is 'probably' depending on the insurance company… Read More
PLPD is public liability and property damage. Property damage provides insurance cover against damage caused by you to the other person's vehicle or building, etc. Public liability insurance covers the occupants of both your and the other vehicle usually to a maximum of $250,000. Note that PL&PD does not cover your vehicle nor you as the driver.

It's the driver in #2 who is responsible. He should have steered more safely.
You can take driving lessons as early as 12 if you know someone that is willing to teach you. But...they must teach you on private property and run the risk of you damaging the vehicle you learn in. You are too young to be covered on insurance for a driver, without a license or permit. If you can find someone willing to do this, you're on your way to learning to drive.
It depends on whether or not the vehicle or property was attended, whether or not anyone was injured or killed, and whether or not the driver was properly licensed.
This is dependent on whether one driver was in marked lanes and the other wasn't Added; In many jurisdictions there are no enforceable traffic regulations on private parking lots. They are private property on which the municipal traffic laws do not apply. Usually it becomes a matter for the individual's insurance companies to subrogate.
Assuming you mean while operating a commercial vehicle - first, both you yourself and the supervising driver must be at least 21 to be allowed to operate a commercial vehicle across state lines.
It matters not if you are on private property, your property or the moon. If you were negligent and caused damage to someones property thru that negligence you are liable. The police may not come and file a report, but again that does not absolve you of your negliegence, liabililty or responsiblity to the 'victim' for your negliegence. YES, you are liable, and responsible for the other vehicles damage in all but very very few… Read More
