While travelling on a road inside school grounds. Approach a car park to right car waiting to turn Car pulls out of a car park hits right hand side of the car Who is liable?
There is a lot more to determining this, but both parties will be partially at fault. The person behind the other car had the duty to try to get out of the way, the person backing up had the duty to see before he backed up. If it is as simple as stated, it would most likely be 10-20% fault for the person who got hit, 80-90% for the person backing up.
Vehicle gets hit while pulling out of parking space by a car that is going backwards and hits the side of your car who is liable under new york law?

If you are pulling into traffic, from a being parked, you have interrupted the flow of traffic. That's the tricky part about parallel parking; when to do it and how not to interfere with cars.

I assume you're talking about the e-mail where theres a picture of a school bus and it asks you which way its traveling.look at the picture, do you see the door to let the kids on? then its traveling to the left.This is why little kids always get this one right =)
It depends on how hard the pull is. It would be safest to get your vehicle fixed before getting on the highway.
the guy should not hit the 2 cars on the right and he should not go near them

Who is fault is it if car A is parking on the side of a road and a car B pulls in behind car A in between a park car to let a car go by on the other side of the road and car A reverses into car B?

No. If the car turning left is in his proper lane and has the proper signal he is not liable.
Because no road ever built is perfectly even for the purpose of water run off from rain. The vehicle is naturally going to attempt to pull to where it is being pulled to. Improperly inflated tires will add to this dilema. If your right tire has more air in it than the left, the car will pull left...

Check your turn signal stalk switch.In some cars, German ones in particular, this is an intentional safety feature. If the turn signal is not centered the parking lights stay on so it is more easily seen at night if the car is parked on the side of a narrow street.

Grammatically, of course not.The term "pull you over" means "to stop a moving vehicle at the side of the road".Clearly, if you are parked, you are already pulled over (past tense) and thus the cop cannot put you over.There are some offences, e.g.parking, that you can be ticketed for even though y...
