[KINDA SOLVED] Whose fault for getting rear-ended after stopping at a red light and proceeding to make a right turn
I was going to make a right turn and as the car in front of me made a right, I stopped before the pedestrian crossing to check for pedestrians and oncoming traffic to my left. When I noticed there a big enough gap like no cars in sight when I glanced left, I made the right turn quickly so that my car was now completely parallel to the street I made a right turn on (I always try to make sure just in case something like this happens). Then out comes this Volvo that probably accelerated (not really sure) to get past the intersection and blew his horn at me for a few seconds. I do have a good sense of how far the car was initially going and I'm thinking this car started accelerating beyond the normal 65 km/h on a 50 km/h zone. Many cars are like that, they start of slow and when they noticed someone trying to make a right, they speed up because they have the right of way.
I did raise my hand to acknowledge my potential mistake and "apology" and he didn't blow his horn again.
If he ended up rear-ending me, would it have been a 50/50? He would have smashed his Volvo into the rear end of my 02 Civic head on, no angle (well except 180 degrees) whatsoever.
I don't know how to do fancy animation so my apologies and I don't want to open a new account to admit my mea culpa.
