    I was driving yesterday, the roads were HORRIBLE! I was taking my time and as I was coming down a slight hill, a car pulled out in front of me. Thankfully I was driving slow enough that it wasn t a big deal. Then all the sudden we are still on the hill and he stops to turn on a side street. I was slipping and I knee I would hit him I could not stop in time. So I saw that the other side of the road was clear and I went around him. I know not a smart move. But it was fine. But idk if the car behind me hit the car I was trying to avoid. If they did, is it my fault?? Idk if there was an accident I slowed down but I couldn t tell. If they have my plate number, I m afraid I might have a warrant for my arrest for leaving the scene of an accident (if one happened) answers please ?

  • Should I sign over my car to the tow company or "abandon it?"?

    my car was towed and the company told me I need to pay $30/day plus towing fee. The car is worth less than what they are asking for so I decided I will leave the car with them.

They said I can sign over the title, but I still need to pay 200 for the tow. I've read somewhere that if I dont do anything, at a certain point they are allowed to obtain a new title under their name and are free to do whatever they want. It said if I were to do this, I would I be free from paying any fees including towing and daily storage. Is this true?

  • What happens if a police stops you while you were driving but you don't have a driver's license? (If you live in California)?

    Best answer: A lot of things can happen. It depends very heavily on the cop, the judge and the individual driver. A traffic stop, like a whole lot of things in life, isn't a one-size-fits-all situation. It's a complex equation, and equations are all about the variable factors. Lemmy explain a little...

    Best answer: A lot of things can happen. It depends very heavily on the cop, the judge and the individual driver. A traffic stop, like a whole lot of things in life, isn't a one-size-fits-all situation. It's a complex equation, and equations are all about the variable factors. Lemmy explain a little...

    If the driver is cooperative, or at least reasonable, it might be a minor traffic ticket and a phone call to have a licensed driver pick up the vehicle and nothing else. Pay a measly little fine, lesson learned and done deal. If the driver starts pulling any of that sovereign citizen crap or accuses the cop of racism, sexism or some other ism, that driver might be facing several serious charges on top of a Taser wound or two.

    Then there's the cop. If the cop is in a good mood, business has been slow and it's a lovely day, the driver can probably expect a break or two. If the cop hasn't been laid in over a month and just finished dispersing a college campus protest (aka mini riot caused by entitled brats), things might not go so well for the driver.

    Same deal with the judge. If the judge feels that the driver has truly learned their lesson about driving unlicensed and the threat it poses to public safety, that's a whole lot different from a judge who just had to sentence someone to prison for killing a bus full of school children while driving without a licence.

    And that's just the cold hard truth about how this stuff works.

  • Can you drive without front license plate in Ontario ? If not , what are the risks?

    Best answer: No you can't. Ontario law says you must put front and rear plates on anything that isn't a motorbike. The risk is a whopping $110 fine with no naughty-naughty points.

    NOTE: If your vehicle is visiting Ontario from a jurisdiction that doesn't require front plates, you get a pass.

    Best answer: Have you read your insurance policy? Probably not. None of us really do. I haven't either. But I do know what goes on in these situations only because I work for a law firm that does insurance defense litigation. Part of the time, I field calls from insureds who are pissed off too because they think the insurance company is pointing fingers at them. Some of these callers are innocent and some of them are the biggest frauds ever. By law, there are certain conditions in your policy with which you must comply in order for them to consider your claim. Perhaps they took your examination under oath at which you provided copies of those phone records and receipts you mentioned? Or perhaps they just requested those documents and have not taken your EUO yet. I am not in Virginia but the law on insurance claims is pretty much the same in the 48 contiguous states.

    While three months from your perspective is "freaking long," from the perspective of the insurance company, and from the perspective of the law, it is not. Your insurance company receives thousands and thousands of insurance claims - many of which are fraudulent. It may sound surprising, but lots of people actually make a living off of insurance claims. Some are very good at it. Cars that are stolen and totaled account for a large number.

    I am not saying you are fraudulent. What I AM saying is that by law the insurance company is entitled to investigate any and every claim they receive. If there are red flags to a claim, they will investigate further. If, on the other hand, the claim is simple, straightforward and does not even hint at fraud, they can, and often, issue a check in a matter of days. I had a hail damage claim for my car once. Walked into the claim office, and sat. I thought I was waiting for them to call on me. They had actually pulled my car around already. They examined my car, examined all the hail damage, calculated the amount to have the hail damage repaired and cut me a check on the spot. Took an hour.

    Insurance claims vary from claim to claim. You have suffered a loss but it is one loss. The insurance company receives thousands of claims and they actually pay thousands of fraudulent claims that they did not know were fraudulent to begin with. By law they have a right to investigate each claim. It's in your policy. I'm sorry for your loss. Truly. But just hold on until they're done.

    Traffic stopped so did I. And out of the blue a girl read ended me. At the time I had no injuries since my adrenaline was so high and I was beyond scared since I’ve never been into a car accident. Now I am experiencing pain in the left side of my face. That night I went into the ER andnwas diagnosed with Severe whiplash. The next night my left arm was swollen and numb. Due to that I am experiencing an extreme hardship since I my car is totaled and the insurance company is only offering 9K which doesn’t even pay off my loan, I am experiencing emotional pain since my car had a huge emotional value to me. Also now I feel stress out and emotionally not ready to drive a car again. But I have to since I work in Seattle but live in Bellevue. All of this I don’t think I’m getting the support from both insurance companies. I feel like I’m not being compensated for anything that happened. I am at no fault and due to her negligence I am now in debt with 3K and screwed. I feel like I should be compensated with paying off my whole car loan which is 12K. What are my options? Can I end up suing her? She admitted responsibility. Police report should be ready on Monday. It truly pisses me off because I got my car only 7 months ago and i loved it so much!

    Best answer: If they only $160 a month, then they really are out of their minds, because they would lose a lot of money charging so little. The price should be much higher.

    The only three ways to get it even cheaper than that incredibly low price are (1) wait until you are older, (2) become female, or (3) move to a place where insurance costs less -- but if the price is really that low where you live, then you might already be in the place with the lowest price in the country.
