A friend is take over payments on a vehicle I no longer need and he was pulled over for speeding after making a turn from a stop light and I as the vehicle owner as well as the friend got a ticket for the same thing even though I was not present.
If at a traffic light there are two cars on opposite sides of the street both making left turns and a car from behind one of the turning cars decided to go around and then hits the turning car from the opposite side of the road who would be at fault for the accident.
The car from behind would have most, if not all of the fault, assuming everyone agreed on the facts as described. The car turning left from the opposite side may also have some fault as it could have had a clear view of the oncoming vehicle and might have been able to yield to avoid the collision.
