安省停车场发生碰撞后适用规则。How to deal with a car collision in a parking area?
Here are some of the 'rules of the road' as they apply to parking lots.
You are always at fault if you hit a parked car, if it is parked legally.
If an illegally parked car is hit by another car, the owner of the illegally parked car is generally at fault
Drivers on a main lane that enters or exits into the lot have the right of way over drivers pulling out of parking spots or entering from a feeder lane.
Even if there is no stop sign where you enter a main lane from a feeder lane, you are expected to stop or at least, yield to traffic,
If you back into a feeder lane or main lane and another car hits you, then you will likely be held responsible for the accident.
If two drivers back into one another while pulling out of a parking spot they may both be at fault If you back into an opened door of a parked car, the owner of the parked car is at fault.
If you open your door and hit another car, then you are at fault for the damage.
If a car accident results because one or more drivers ignored a traffic sign in the lot, then the driver(s) who failed to obey the sign is at fault.
If someone drives recklessly and hits another car or a pedestrian, then they can be held liable under Ontario traffic laws.
If you or your vehicle was hit by someone who left the scene of the accident, this situation will be treated like any other hit-and-run accident. You need to immediately inform your insurer of the accident if someone was injured or if you wish to file a claim for property damage, and the police must also be informed if there was combined damage over $2000 or any injuries.
If your insurer finds it difficult to ascertain who was at fault in a parking lot accident, they will likely assign 50 per cent blame to both drivers, which means that your insurance may be affected if you make a claim.
