Answer to Green light intersection

Hello Norma,

Well, no apparent reason? The reason will be important, critical, actually.

A vehicle following too close (defined as not with enough time to stop) can be held 100% liable, however, if there person in front cause the accident intentionally or without any excusable action (avoiding an accident or hitting someone), then that person may have liability (not necessarily 100%, but some).

Each vehicle that hit the next will also have a share of liability for the same reason (following too close).

Good Luck,
