Answered on Jan 9, 2019
Peter Munsing's answer
Someone can be at fault even if no one charged. She has a duty to inch out if her view is obstructed and to take an alternate route. If she has no insurance bigger problem is that her license could be suspended.

Unless there's some reason to believe the other person is at fault, the only other option is a possible claim against the owner of the obstruction, but if the obstruction is permissable under the town and state codes that's another question.
