Who Caused the Accident? The Speeder, or the Car without a Blinker?

There are two drivers in this accident and both failed to follow the laws of the road. Who do you think was at fault for causing the accident? The person who was speeding, or the driver who failed to use their blinker when turning across oncoming traffic?

Speeding is never a safe decision. Going faster than the posted speed limit increases the likelihood of an accident like this one. It also makes injuries more likely and more severe.

In this video, the driver was going faster than the posted speed limit. This was a significant factor in the cause of the accident. Someone who is traveling at a high rate and causes an accident should be held accountable for their actions and the injuries they cause.

The driver who failed to use their car’s indicator is also breaking the law. Failing to indicate where you are going can lead to accidents because other drivers aren’t aware of your intentions and make decisions based on what they believe you’re doing instead of what your actual plans are.

The driver who didn’t use their blinker did contribute to the crash because the other driver didn’t know they were going to turn. If they had known a car was going to turn in front of them, they may have slowed down and avoided the accident. There is no correct answer as to who caused this accident. Both drivers are at fault because neither was following the law. The true question is, whose illegal actions were the greater contributing factor to the accident. The driver who failed to use their blinker would have been able to complete their turn if the other driver were following the speed limit. The speeder, given how fast they were going, probably wouldn’t have been able to slow enough to avoid a crash, even if they had seen a blinker.

It is our opinion that the speeding driver’s actions were a greater contributing factor to the accident. Their actions and decisions increased the likelihood of a crash. They also add significantly to the severity of any injuries that occurred (if any) in an accident like this.
