### Red light runner partially responsible for accident???

Take a look at this...

www.statesman.com/news/news/local/jury- … age/nRgqf/

Maybe somebody can explain the logic behind this....

If I run a red light and collide with another vehicle..
If the other vehicle is below the speed limit I'm 100% responsible.
If the other vehicle is speeding I'm partially at fault.

I don't see what relevance the speed of the other vehicle has with the cause of
the accident.

This is like saying somebody is at fault for an accident because they weren't
wearing their seatbelt.

The eclipses from Algol come further apart in time when the Earth is moving away from Algol and closer together in time when the Earth is moving towards Algol, thereby proving that the speed of light is variable and that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is wrong.

I think you could call that being at the wrong place at the wrong time...

If the other vehicle is speeding I'm partially at fault.

I guess they want the other guy to take partial blame, after all he is breaking the law.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

hi Fruityloop and others,

I have checked out the link and can find no fault with it.  Just an annoying advert that pops up when you first arrive at the site.  So I have reinstated it in post 1.  My apologies for the hold up but I felt it was better to be cautious, until I was sure.
