Practice

Look for causation in the following scenario.

Yesterday, I pulled out of a diagonal parking spot, and was starting to turn my wheel and move forward, when another car backed out of a spot behind me. She drove right into me, smashing my left rear door with the corner of her bumper. The other driver told the police officer that I hit her. But he agreed with me that it was her fault, and wrote down why on the police report.

What did the police officer write? Circle all that could apply.

a. Drivers must wait their turn if another car is already pulling out of a parking space behind them. It is clear that the first car was already out of her space when she was hit on her door.

b. It is impossible to hit the corner of someone's bumper with your rear door when backing out of a parking spot. It is possible to hit the rear door of someone's car with the corner of your bumper.

c. Speeding in parking lots is prohibited by law.

d. The other driver must not have been looking in her rearview mirror, or she would not have backed into the other car.
