Who is at fault if you back out of your driveway and into another car backing out of their driveway?

Both are equally at fault and you may both have to use your own insurance to pay the damage. If a police report was filed, then the police will determine the % of fault to each person. CORRECTION - Your INSURANCE COMPANY will determine the fault - not the police. Yes, it may be a 50/50 situation, unless one party admits 100% fault.

Who is at fault is it when backing out of a driveway?

I had a friend who got a ticket for backing out of a driveway. It was not in a neighborhood, it was on a 'regular' road. He didn't cause a wreck or anything, but a policeman was driving by and turned around and came back to give him a ticket. Told him it was illegal to back out into a road.


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.

Who is at fault if you are backing out of a driveway your back tires haven't left the sidewalk yet and your neighbor pulls in front of your driveway to back up into a parking space on the street?

Finding out the answer to these sorts of questions is what courts are for. The answer depends on the details, but from the brief description given, I'm inclined toward the position that it's probably your fault, or a mixture of fault, but with you being the one mostly in the wrong. People who are backing up are supposed to take extra caution.


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. I have a straight driveway and it's not illegal to back out onto a minor residential street.
