Sounds like Car #1 is at fault
In general, the driver who is backing is considered to be at fault.
If you are pulling out and hit the other car.....you are. Person in the lane has the right of way.
the car backing out.
If you were already in the turn lane and they cut you off it is the other drivers fault. They should have yielded to you already in the turn lane.
It depends if you pulled out without looking and/or too quickly so as to cut off the car on your right it's your fault. If you were moving very slow and they didnt see you and hit you its their fault. Although.. It is your responsibility as the car NOT in the driving lane to yield to the car IN the driving lane.
She lives life in the fast lane. He was driving down a two-lane highway. Clark Kent was in love with Lois Lane. : )
The driver of the vehicle that swerved into your lane would be charged with "Changing Lanes Without Caution."
Legally the driver who's car "hits" the back of the other car.
It really depends on where they hit you and if you were moving. For example if you are stopped in the left hand lane waiting to turn (legally) and a car hits you, it is their fault. However if you are somewhere you are not supposed to be and they hit you, it is your fault for being there. It all comes down to the right of way and who has it.
They should not be driving in the bus lane to start with bus lane means bus lane end of story.
for passing other cars
