An accident is usually the fault of the driver who was violating the law. However, other circumstances may apply. It is illegal to go through a yield sign and not yield even if you then slam on the brakes. Still, something else might apply. Courts exist to take care of such situations.
Of course you do, and if they crash into you and get hurt it's all their fault!
true! but.......... false if they are a aggrivated driver.
Yes it is.
No, it is not your fault. If you are hit when driving in front of somebody, it is their fault, irregardless of whether you slowed down or not. Obviously you can't jump in front of somebody and slam on the brakes, but just slowing down does not permit somebody to ram you.
it is car 2's fault because it hit car 1 forcing car 3 to hit car 2
Car 1 is at Fault in any REAR END ACCIDENT- Following to close, Failure to stop within a clear distance.
yes, the only purpose of the anti-lock system is to keep the wheels from locking up when you slam on the brakes. The brakes them selves function as usual. You will just have the chance of locking your wheels up and sliding if you slam on them.
That all depends on several variables. Is it driven in the city or mostly highway? Quality of the pads, shoes, rotors, etc installed? What kind of driver are you? Do you run 90 mph stop light to stop light and slam on the brakes or do you anticipate stopping and use the brakes as little as possible? How about riding the brakes? Towing a trailer?
Slam on your brakes. If your brakes lock up, then you do not have ABS. If your brakes do not lock up and you hear a knocking type of noise from your brakes, then you have ABS.
