This depends on the state you are in and most times whether it is a private parking lot or not. Florida is a no fault state so it you back out and hit someone or if someone hits you while backing out then you are both equally At Fault and both insurances have to cover. most cops here dont even ask because in a private parking lot it doesnt matter both insurances cover anyways.

To directly answer your question, I would say that the vehicle leaving a parking spot - in a parking lot - DOES NOT have the right of way. Any vehicle leaving a parking spot to a public road would also NOT have the right of way. This answer is given under the authority of COMMON SENSE.

In Kentucky, the vehicle on the main roadway has the right-of-way, regardless of direction. The person exiting the parking lot, must yield to traffic!

(in the UK and U.S.) The driver turning left has the right of way over anyone exiting parking lot. Those going straight on the road have the right of way over the driver turning left into parking lot. This is unless a traffic signal indicates otherwise.

The person driving through. If you're backing out then you do not have the right of way.

The person driving on the straightaway/ roadway. Backing out of a driveway or parking spot is the same as a stop sign. The right of way belongs to the person on the road.

Turn the wheel to the left if parking on the right. Turn your wheel to the right if parking on the left{one-way} Turn the wheel to the left if parking on the right. Turn your wheel to the right if parking on the left{one-way}

In all 50 states, the vehicle exiting a drive way has to yield the right of the way to all on coming traffic. In this case, you should not be cited.

The person backing out due to the other car having the right-of-way.

The default answer is the car that is moving is at fault unless the moving car has the right of way. However parking lots are messy and there will be no police reports unless the damage is over a certain amount ($2500 I think). The best thing to do is handle it without insurance companies.

This tale of revenge is almost unbelievable. It all starts when a family gets cut off on the way to Six Flags. Usually, a trip to Six Flags is a cause for celebration. It's fun for the whole family, right?

The road right of ways rules in Philippines is that any person coming out of the parking or driveway has a right of way.

Exiting = sortir If you mean exciting: excitant (but it can be meant in a sexual way)

If that lane is reserved for parking, then no. A parking lane is exactly that - a lane for parking. If it's a parking lane which ends before the intersection and then becomes a turn lane, then you would turn into it. However, if it's still a parking lane up to the intersection, then you would stay out of it.

the person driving on the road has the right of way, which means he/she goes first, therefore you are to let the person pass by before backing your vehicle

Is it possible that you are both at fault? The person backing out is at fault. He was stopped and should have been looking before backing out. However, if the parking lot is designed so that you can only go one way, then you may be at fault. The insurance companies will look at the police report and fight it out.

If you have ever been to an airport then you know just how difficult it can sometimes be to find appropriate and convenient airport parking. There are many ways to go about the locating of airport parking which will help make the process much easier and less stressful. The first thing to do is to remain calm. Having a panic attack during a time like this will not help the situation at all. Having an ease of mind and a clear head will help you locate the most opportune parking in the airport parking lot. It would be ideal to first look for parking that is as close to your terminal as you can get. Then start working your way back further through the parking lot until you are able to find the most convenient airport parking. There might be others who will compete with you to find the best spot for parking in an airport parking lot. Do not try to race these people in getting to the spot first. That method could only end in either an accident or a feud with the person whom you were trying to beat to the parking spot. The best way to go about this is to turn your turn signal on when you find the ideal airport parking spot and hope that the person trying for the same spot is respectful enough to let you have the parking. Once you have found your parking spot in the airport parking lot, make sure you take note of which section of the parking lot in which you are located. Most airport parking lots are very large and span a large space, making it very easy to lose track of the precise location in which you are parked. To combat this, just remember the letter of the section of the parking lot in which you are parked. The letter should be in a central location of the parking lot on one of the lighting poles. If you follow all of these steps, then you should have not trouble at all when it comes to finding and dealing with airport parking and all it entails.

While there is no right way to parallel park, there are several unwritten rules to parallel parking that everyone should know. Rule#1 Never upset another parallel parker, especially if they park in front or behind you. Some things that upset other drivers are (a) not leaving them enough space to manuever out of a parking space (b) parking your vehicle with your front bumper mashed into their rear bumper. Rule#2 To keep your bumpers safe when parking, never park in a tight space and always give other cars enough space to exit a parking spot. A driver that's locked into a parking spot is like a caged animal...they will bump your car as many times as needed.

If my memory serves me correctly, it would be the fault of the driver who was in reverse if that driver struck the other car mostly on its broad side. After all, the driver who is pulling out of a parking lot has the right-of-way as opposed to someone in a parking spot. As far as an insurance claim goes the drivers would have to have insurance, and the driver who was struck would want to make sure they were driving within the bounds of the law (such as observing posted speed limits, stop signs, direction arrows,etc.).Hope this helps.

Yours. There is no way for the other car to anticipate you exciting your vehicle, but you could have checked if a car was pulling in before opening your door.Answercorrect. the party needs to yield Right of Way. They entered into your lane of travel,

Right of way violations are when you occupy another vehicles travel lane either unsafely or by parking or stopping in the way. Right of way is usually used by the police to show fault in an accident.

NCP car parks are a great way to find parking services near a location near or away from you. Some of the services also include finding a parking spot near airports.
