O.K. The vehicle that is backing out is backing out from private property. The vehicle that is pulling away should have the right of way. You see when a vehicle is trying to enter a Highway via driveway, parking lot, ect. he is ASKING for the right of way and he is responsible for yielding. Hope this helps.

If a vehicle is pulling out of a driveway onto the road and a vehicle that is speeding collides with them who is at fault?

Possibly both drivers would be assigned a percentage of the responsibility. If not, it would be the fault of the driver pulling out of the driveway. It is your responsibility to make sure that you have ample time and space to enter any roadway before you do so. If the other driver was exceeding the speed limit, they could be assigned the fault, with the thought that if they had been traveling the proper speed, they would be in control of the vehicle and could have avoided it.

the person backing out of the driveway of course.
