Customer: replied 1 month ago.
A truck pulled out in front of me as i was coming down a main road causing me to brake hard and as a result i have collided into his side.

Ok, what do you want to know?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Is it my fault for failing to stop as he had already committed to pulling out of the side road?

How close was he? Were you speeding?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Not speeding and about 8 metres

How fast you were going?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
40
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Mph

If you were doing 40mph then the stopping distance is 36m

As this person was 8 meters away then clearly it is THEIR fault.

It is not your fault.

See stopping distances at:

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
