It's the fault of the other driver. If the police were not present there isn't much either of you can do. If it was a fairly serious accident and damage done to the vehicles, police were at the scene they would know whose fault it was. Usually damage down the side of the car or a rear-ender is a good sign you weren't at fault and the other driver was.

If a car was speeding down the road and i was pulling out of the side road and she hit my drivers side backdoor after looking both ways you pull out from a stop sign and she hits you whose fault is?

It's not your fault. It was the person who was speeding.ANOTHER VIEW: Sorry, but it is your fault. The person pulling into traffic is responsible for doing so cautiously and safely. Your contention that the other car was speeding is going to be difficult or impossible to prove, and you should be an experienced enough driver to be able to gauge the speed of oncoming traffic.

Whose fault - car accident?

More info-- one driver was speeding down a residential street late for work and hit a parked car's slightly open door and ripped it off. The parked car driver had a license and coverage but it was a new lease and had not yet added the new car to the policy. The in-motion driver had current coverage but no drivers license. Both claim the other is at fault. Who is more screwed?

Who is at fault if someone opens their car door is hit but the other perrson is speeding?

not sure what you mean by "someone opens their car door is hit", but usually, the person speeding is at fault. He IS speeding afterall, which is illegal in the first place..Disagree: It is the responsiblity of the person opening the car door to ascrtain if there is oncoming traffic and it is safe to do so. It may be YOUR contention that the oncoming car was speeding - how are you going to prove it?The possible result (from a law enforcement perspective) - the person whose door was struck could be ticketed and (if insured) the insurance companies will probably fight it out between themselves.

Whose fault - my neighbor backed out of her driveway and hit my car while I was driving in the back lane Although I stopped and honked Now she claims that she was looking that I hit her.?

In any situation in which a vehicle backing out of a property hits another vehicle, the driver who was backing up is always at fault, barring speeding, impairment, or disregarded traffic controls/signs on the part of the driver who was on the road. Added: I concur. The vehicle operating in reverse must always yield to any other vehicle. The charge I am familiar with is "Backing Without Caution."

Is Mensa or the Triple Nine Society more ideal for a person with an IQ of 178?

Both Mensa and the Triple Nine Society are social organizations for people with high IQs. Mensa admits people whose IQ is at or above the 98th percentile. The Triple Nine Society admits those whose IQ is at or above the 99.9th percentile. Therefore, the Triple Nine Society would be the more prestigious of the two, while Mensa is the larger of the two. The IQ of 178 would be in about the middle of Mensa's range, while it would be at the lower end of the Triple Nine Society's.

If a speeding citaton is given with company insurance info instead of personal whose insurance and record is affected?

When a speeding citation is given, it is given to the driver... not the owner of the vehicle nor the person (or company) who is insuring the vehicle. Therefore, the driver's insurance and driving record will reflect the charge. If this person was driving a company vehicle (and therefore insurance paid by the company) then the companies insurance policy COULD be affected but not always. The cost of corporate insurance policies that cover multiple vehicle and/or drivers are determined by many factors such as # of vehicles, types of vehicles, company claim history, # of drivers and ages there of. Most companies must report their drivers information to the insurance company which will then check the drivers records which will then allow the insurance company to 'rate that driver' and asses a cost for insuring that driver. Some companies will refuse employ drivers with too many moving violations... or not let them drive company vehicles. I hope the answered your question.
