Ok, say I'm driving at the regular speed limit along this road, and all of a sudden, a kid on a bike zooms out of this side road and slams into my car. Suppose he gets hurt or dies-- am I liable for anything? I wasn't breaking any laws or anything, just driving regular. The kid didn't stop at all at his stop sign or signal anything or what. This is just to settle this debate I have with a friend of mine who insists that it would be the drivers fault because the pedestrian always has the right of way. Now, 5 years ago when I took my driver's ed classes, I learned the typical mantra "the pedestrian always has the right of way", but in this case?? I don't know...Any lawyers out there or anyone that knows about traffic/insurance law?
