Is it illegal to back out of a driveway?

Only onto a major road or junction, or by a local ordinance. Otherwise we would all have a U shaped driveway. You need a turn-around area in your driveway. It certainly is not safe to come to a stop on the highway and back into your driveway nor is it safe to back out of your driveway onto the highway.

Who is fault back out of driveway into car parked in the road facing wrong direction opposite side of street directly across from my driveway?

As a general principle, the person operating a moving piece of machinery is responsible for damage to any non-moving obstructions. Whether or not the other car was legally parked is irrelevant. It could be abandoned in the middle of the road and it would still be the drivers responsibility to see and avoid it.

It is not illegal in any state to back into a driveway from a highway. A person should use extra caution when doing this to make sure that the road is clear in both directions. If the highway has high traffic, pull to the left shoulder of the road, then back into the driveway when it is safe to do so.

Who is at fault when a car is blocking the driveway and as you back out you try to stop but it is icy and you hit the car blocking the driveway?

What type of driveway? Was it a curving and could not see the car before rounding the curve? Is it straight; then why did you not see the car blocking the driveway before even getting into car and/or backing..

Who is at fault if you back out of your driveway and hit a vehicle that is illegally parked and partially blocking your driveway exit?

You are. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter where the car was parked. Even if it was parked on the moon, you still hit it so... I know it doesn't seem fair but rules are rules. Well, the other driver could receive a ticket for illegally parking, but the car was unoccupied and you ran into it. That makes you responsible for the accident, particularly if you knew the car was there before you back out. Not suprisingly, that someone may have done something wrong does not mean everyone else gets to take a free shot at them. In fact, it may put more obligation on those later to lessen the effects of the wrong doers actions. So, the first one doing wrong may be less responsible than the last one, or anyone who could have avoided making it a problem.

Who is at fault when you are parked in your friends driveway and they back up and hit your car?

This has alot to do with if the impact is on private property and if you had permission to park in the friends driveway, then ultimately if you want to remain friends. If it's an easement or such, the other answers may apply.Another View: Whether you are on someone else's private property makes no difference, the striking vehicle is at fault. Your insurance companies will have to battle it out.

Who is at fault when you back into a car that is illegally parked?

Of course it is your fault. The fact that the car was illegally parked is of no consequence. You didn't look where you were backing or you would not have hit the parked car. Would you have hit this car if you had been looking? Perhaps the illegally parked car is a Mini Cooper, parked illegally 1 foot behind a Hummer and therefore not visable when the driver looks before backing up...

Why is Juliet to blame?

Juliet is to blame for the nurse's bad back because she sent the nurse out for an errand early on a Monday morning and then didn't give her a back rub when she got back. Juliet is to blame for her father's high blood pressure, because she resisted his plans to marry Paris. Basically it's easy to blame anyone for anything. If you get really good at it you can be a litigation lawyer.

Can a vehicle be repossessed if it is blocked in the driveway by another vehicle?

If you have not paid your loan, your vehicle is repossessed. If your vehicle is parked illegally, such as in front of a driveway or in a no parking zone, it is impounded. In both cases, a police report should have been turned in to the local police department. With an impounded vehicle you generally have a parking ticket, a towing fee, and a storage fee. All three must be paid before you get your vehicle back. Next time walk an extra block.
