If you rear end a stopped vehicle, which is pushed into another stopped vehicle and then that into another, you would be responsible for all of the vehicles.

When stopped and a possible hazard to traffic on the roadway, or when moving so slowly that you are a hazard to overtaking traffic.

If the vehicle is stationary in the roadway blocking traffic, with its hazard flashers on (UNLESS IT IS A SCHOOL BUS OR EMERGENCY VEHICLE) you may proceed cautiously around it providing oncoming traffic is not a hazard.

I suppose you could blame anyone, but the short answer would be NO of course not if you are not involved in the acicdent. What is the extent of the neglience that they are allegeing? Now, if it is a situation such as these; "the wave of death', you are stopped in traffic and 'wave' another vehicle out from a stop and they are hit by traffic. You swerve into on coming traffic, (without making contact with another vehicle), but the vehicle you were headed towards, loses control or flips their vehicle trying to avoid you. Or similar situations, then yes, you could be held accountable. At least to some degree. If you could be more specific as to the exact facts of loss, I'm sure I could be of more assistance to you.

In general, only when the lane to the right of the other vehicle is an actual traffic lane, and not always then.The traffic violation "passing on the right" is generally interpreted as using the shoulder to pass another vehicle.

Legally you are not supposed to cross a double solid yellow line. Another Answer: There are exceptions. You can cross it to go around a stopped vehicle and for a few other reasons, not to pass another vehicle.

The air bag rear suspension on your vehicle has failed. This is an expensive repair.

It's the vehicle license number so a police officer can track it to see who owns it and if another officer has stopped the vehicle before.

The energy being released in the engine is not transferred to the outside; it manifests as vibration, which is transferred to the rest of the vehicle, hence the shaking of the car.

If you are legally stopped or detained in any way, you are obligated to obey police commands. That includes traffic stops. If you were pulled over for a traffic infraction, the police have the right to command you to step out of your vehicle.
