Best Answer

If the driver had hit a pedestrian or a car that was sitting, waiting for a stoplight, who would be At Fault? The driver is responsible for whatever he hits. While the parked car will get a parking ticket, that is not a "moving violation", and cannot be considered the cause of a collision. Drivers are responsible for avoiding ALL obstacles, even illegally parked cars.

Who is liable in a rear end collision if the car that was rear ended was parked?

As long as the parked vehicle is parked properly and not illegally parked in any manner, then the vehicle that rear-ended the parked car is at fault. Now if the parked car is sitting illegally (such as double parked or parked in a no parking zone, etc.) then the parked car is at fault or even both the parked car AND the car that hits it are BOTH at fault.

It depends on the situation. If you stoped short and got rear ended it is your fault. But if you stoped becasue the driver in front of you stoped then it is that persons fault.

If a car is parked in a loading zone and is hit by another car who is at fault?

It has been suggested that: " Loading zones are usually for delivery trucks or semi trucks delivering goods to the warehouse or store, so if your car was in the loading zone and you were not given permission to unload something you had in the car, then it's your fault for being there in the first place, and if it was just a car going by and it hit you, then they would be at fault as well." However, this ignores the fact that parked cars usually do not "cause" the collision merely by being there, whether or not legal. Otherwise, drivers would be free to collide with anything that gets in the way in violation of any law. No-parking zones are not usually for protecting other drivers from collisions with parked cars, but rather for the convenience of traffic or abutting businesses. Who is at fault if you hit a car at an expired parking meter? Whether a car is legally parked or not, the driver of every other moving vehicle has a positive obligation to pay attention and stop before hitting it! Simply parking illegally will almost never excuse another driver from hitting the parked car. The parking driver has an obligation to the TOWN to obey the signs, but unlike moving violations, has no obligation to other drivers to follow the parking law, with rare exceptions. You can't sue someone for illegally parking on a public street, especially after you crash into them. No obligation, no negligence, no fault, no payment.
