intersection. I had stopped at...
Although I had a stop sign, I was already in the intersection. I had stopped at the stop sign; looked in both directions and only proceeded when I felt it was safe--no one was coming! After I entered the intersection, a car (speeding) came over a slight hill and hit me. Since I was already in the intersection and did follow the law, I do not feel I failed to yield. The auto driver who hit me failed to yield!

I was in the intersection when I was hit by another driver. I had stopped at the stop sign and looked both ways before and saw no one before entering the intersection. However, I was charged with failure to yield. I do not feel I failed to yield. The other driver, I believe failed to yield. What was I suppose to do. No one was there when I looked.

The question is: DID THE OTHER DRIVER FAIL TO YEILD? or DID I FAILURE TO YIELD, EVENTHOUGH, I STOPPED AT THE STOP SIGN AND LOOKED BEFORE I WENT OUT AND AT THAT TIME NO ONE WAS THERE.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
In some states, once one stops and makes sure it is safe to travel, he is not guilty of failure to yield. Can their law be applied to another state that does not make it explicit that to stop alleviates the situation.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I do not wish to switch to the telephone. If I can't even began to get a straight answer in the present format, why would I want to switch?
