Another whos at fault thread (

Hi guys, had a prang today, not sure who would be at fault, give me your opinion.

Its at Purley, A22 coming from the station towards the big Tescos.

Car on my left I expected to go either left or towards the Tesco, it didn't indicate.

As I pulled away, it hesitated but I took my lane, checked my inside mirror and the car shot across me. I breaked and sounded the horn, I as almost stationary, the other car didn't even break. Got her details and put in the claim.

Should she have given way to the right? Was she in the wrong lane?

I had nearside bumper scrap, she had scrap above her rear offside wing. I was hardly moving. (

A one way street you in the right lane and a car in the left pulls across and hit you.

On that I would say they are driving without due care and attention. They should of checked the lane was clear before pulling into it.

Red route so it is not like you were parked and at the same moment decided to move off.

Thanks for your view, I could upload a snip of the cam footage. If I did wrong, fair enough, but she did'nt even slow, my wife said she clearly did'nt see me. What a year...

Dashcam footage would make it much easier to give an opinion.

IMHO from looking at that she was going straight on. Then you crossed slightly into her lane?

Fair comment. I felt though she was trying to undertake me on the inside, that's all.

Hmmmm, looking at that it looks like you started to move across to the left. Looking across the junction to keep in right hand lane there was no need to veering left. I'd be accepting 50/50 on that, if her insurance see footage you might find it's your fault totally. Could be the angle of camera etc but without footage from cctv etc I think you'll struggle.

I think it’s a case for the insurance companies to sort out, it might be viewed as 50/50 if neither of you were indicating. But after watching the video the arrows on the floor clearly show your lane to go straight ahead of right and her lane for straight on or left so I would say she was in the wrong lane.
