Who is at fault in an accident where a vehicle backing out of a parking spot strikes a vehicle that is speeding through the parking lot?

It depends. Parking lots are private property so the usual rules

of the road don't apply. In some states it is 50-50 as far as who's

at fault, because both drivers have a responsibility to watch for

other drivers. Do not admit fault and let the insurance companies

handle it.
