How come the driver's insurance didn't cover the damage, since you had the right of way?

I blame anti-lock brakes. When i was a kid you could tell if you were going to die or just get a nasty bump by how hard the rubber was screeching before impact.

So one solution could be for drivers with EV modes to roll down their windows and pump up the music if they're in congested peddie-heavy areas like parking lots. What's next -- someone busts out the clothespin and deck of cars?

NJ..not only the land of high auto insurance and pollution but the "no fault" state as well. Ended up getting half my bicycles cost from their auto insurance and nothing from the home owners insurance because we had a 500.00 deductable.

But this applies to what happen on the road only.

If a thief breaks into your house and fall, breaking his ankle, he can sue you.
Regarding the thief in the house, breaking his ankle ... "dead men tell no tales"!
"No fault" was brought up in our glorious stare legislature (NC) once...but with all the lawyers present ( the reps), guess what bill got nowhere??? Shazam!

ughh

sounds like a nice way and excuse to sue somebody for a lot of money.
it will also give people against electric cars (oil companies) lots to talk about.
