Generally speaking, you can not pull out of a parking lot into on coming traffic. The on coming traffic most always will have the right away, regardless of your blinker!

If you strike him - you are at fault. He can be charged with the No Parking violation but YOU are charged with the collision.

Usually their is no fault associated with parking lots. I'm sure your insurance company looks at it as your fault.

no one is at fault on private property such as a parking lot

Whomever caused the accident is generally considered the at fault party. It does not matter whether or not your in a parking lot.

If he was backing out then it would certainly be his fault.Normally anyone driving in reverse must yield to anyone moving forward.Added; Not really enough information is disclosed in order to answer the question definitively.The question states, "... pulled out of a parking space..." so I'm going to assume he pulled out frontwards. In that case, although he would probably still be charged, it MIGHT be possible that the investigating officer could charge you with "contributing" to the accident if they believed that you weren't paying attention and COULD have avoided the collision.

You can't reset the parking light - It shows you have a fault at that time - Cure the fault and the light will go out - I have a problem with mine - I have an intermittent fault the light only comes on when the parking brake is faulty - most of the time the lights out

no matter where a vehicle is parked, the moving vehicle is at fault every time.

Yours. If it was stationary and you hit it then it was your fault.

The person at fault would be the one backing into a parking space. Because they are going to look at it as, your supposed to pull into the parking space front first, not backing in. So it would be your fault. But I'm sure that both of you would get a ticket or something else, because they hit you, and you are violating parking lot conduct.

both because ur not quick enough ;) the other guy is thick cos he drove into you!! So more his fault!!

as a rule the car backing up is more responcible cause they should be being a lot more carefull and watchfull

Any time the driver who is backing is at fault, in all 50 states.

Well if you were backing in and hit someone then it is your fault. But if they hit you, then it is their fault.

Rocks being pulled apart are under tension. This is found at divergent plate boundaries. It is a tension fault.

The driver of the car that hit you would be at fault for failing to slow down and avoid hitting you, regardless of which side he or she was on. Parking lots are very dangerous places and people must slow down accordingly.

It is pulled down along a fault line where two tectonic plates meet. If you are looking for a location there is a fault line right off the coast of california.
