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.

Is DUI a moving violation?

Yes, it is considered a 'moving' violation, although you do not have to actually be in motion in order to be charged with the offense. Simply sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle while in possession of the ignition key, even if it is stopped or parked, is sufficient (because you are in "control" of it).

Who is at fault is a moving vehicle hits a non moving vehicle that is legally parked on the street?

Of course it seems like the moving vehicle is. They should have left a note if they were an individual with morals and who would'nt like that to be done to them. ADDITIONAL INFO: Though each accident is handled on a case by case basis, generally the operator of the moving vehicle would be at fault, however instances where a vehicle is illegally parked or grossly impeding traffic may warrant further investigation. In such cases it would be possible to make a case for the illegally parked vehicle be at fault. In such a case of an illegally parked vehicle the owner of the vehicle, even if not deemed at fault, would more than likely at least receive a citation. If such action occurred, then it would be easier for the operator of the moving vehicle, even though they were determined to be at fault, to make a case that if the illegally parked vehicle were not illegally parked in the first place then the accident would have never happened.

Can you be charged with a DUI or a DWI if you r drinking but not driving in a operating vehicle in the state of Michigan?

No, if you are a passenger or are not actually in control of the vehicle. HOWEVER - if you are sitting behind the steering wheel of a vehicle - even though it is stopped, parked, or otherwise not in motion - you would be considered "in control" of the vehicle and you COULD be charged.

If your car is illegally parked and has been hit by another car who pays for damages?

Generally speaking, the driver in motion is considered to be at fault when a parked car is hit, even if the car was parked illegally. The exception to this would be if the car was parked in a dangerous, hard-to-see location and the driver in motion could not have reasonably avoided hitting it. For example, if a car is parked on a sharp curve in the travel lane of a narrow road, and the driver of a car driving around the curve at the speed limit would not be able to see the parked car until too close to it to avoid a collision, then the driver might not be liable for damage to the parked car, and indeed the driver who parked the car might be liable for damage to the car that hit it.

Is the moon acellerating around the earth?

Technically, yes. But probably not in the way you're thinking.Acceleration means that either the speed or the direction of an object's motion is changing.That means that an object moving in a circle is constantly accelerating, even if its speedisn't changing. That's that's the case with the moon.

Who pays when someone hits a parked car?

It's difficult to imagine circumstances in which the owner of the parked car could be considered to be at fault. Almost always, the driver of the moving car will be found liable. Even if the car was not parked properly, the driver of the other car generally will have had the "last clear chance" to avoid hitting it.

If your car is parked and someone drives into your open door?

Depends when you opened the door, but both parties will be at fault regardless. Mainly because why would you leave the door wide open even though you knew there was on-coming traffic and the other driver should have slowed down or stopped and wait for you close it and then go.

Why does your 1995 Rodeo emit a lot of heat from underneath after you have parked it Temperature gauges are accurate and fluids are perfect Sometimes it smells strong but cools quickly?

when parked, engine stopped, coolant (engine) tempatures rise because the water pump that circulates the coolant also stops, no longer sending hot water thru the radiator, removing engine heat,also, air flow thru the radiator has stopped, as the vehicle has ceased motion. this is perfectly normal, and temporary and happens in all liquid cooled engines, even those with electric fans that run for a brief period after shut down, or parking.

Who is at fault when a parked car is hit while in a no parking zone?

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.
