Virginia (As conservative as California is Liberal)
|After all the hurricane hype all we had in northern Virginia was some rain, though the wind picked up some time after midnight. Naturally, it knocked two very large branches off two different trees, both of which landed on my car parked the driveway and smashed the windshield and knocked off both side view mirrors. |

|You really think the turning car should be looking to see if someone is passing in the oncoming lane behind them? Seriously? Even if he was just passing the car that was turning, if you're going to enter the oncoming lane to pass, you need to know what is going on with all vehicles that are around you.|

|I know this is Russia, but under the rules insurance companies tend to here, and I assume it`s somewhat standardized in North America, the turning car is 25% at fault and the other guy is 75% (or 50/50 if it was turning in to a private driveway instead of a real road.) If cars had been stopped behind the turning car, then it would have been 100% fault for the passer.|
Also, hard to tell if the truck even signalled.
