    Sure, it's a turning lane for the gas station, but not the stoplight. I think they would argue you were in the lane too early. The turn lane itself is clearly marked. Granted, Neon was lost and confused and not watching where they were going. Was she at least hot?

    I agree you could have turned into anywhere but I wonder since your speed is on the camera could they make a case against you.

    Never volunteer information in a legal case unless no other alternative. Regardless if decided by a judge, or if it ends up in front of a jury, all any good attorney needs to do is create doubt of guilt or innocence. And a good attorney will make that solid line a major point of contention. It would be very easy to create the impression that BOTH drivers shared fault. I'd play dumb and see if the other driver admits liability before showing video.

    Yes, the video shows that the road markings are not very definitive. But, there is a break in the solid line where the turn area starts, and that is where the neon started their turn. Your entry into that lane was not illegal, but you should have slowed down because you had just entered a turn lane. The video shows your speed was constant, meaning you entered the lane in order to turn at the light. In this case, you were in the lane too early, since technically the "turn at the light" lane began where the solid line was broken. The lane you were in is technically a "turning immediately" lane because of the solid/dotted line with solid on your side. Confusing, you bet. This confusion gives the insurance company the leeway to spread the blame around and tag you with an accident. Meaning they get to charge everyone more money. I'm not judging anything you did, just making observations from the video.

    I'm sure everything will work out but I really hate when there is a shadow of a doubt. I am an honest person and would not want something like this to happen to anyone. I could only hope that most people are good-hearted as well. I can see how this may be incriminating and knowing insurance companies...well, we all know how they operate.

    If it was me, I would take it down until a decision is made.

    So what you're saying is that this most likely would not help my case? What if the driver does not admit fault (which she did on scene, but she could tell her insurance anything).

    Well I do appreciate it. I think I will take your advice at this point.

    My wife worked for an insurance company for many years, and I'm very familiar with the games they play. It's all about subrogation, or the way money is pulled/passed from company to company. They really don't care about you, just how much money they can pull from your insurance company. The easiest way is to put some of the blame on you, then they don't have to pay 100% of the accident. The video is great, but like you said it creates doubt.

    Unless the video was direct and conclusive evidence that contradicts the statements of the other party, it's just as apt to be a liability to YOUR case as it would be an asset. Remember, you're dealing with insurance companies and potentially attorney's. They won't be on your side. They won't look at that video with the same preconceived thoughts as you. They'll be trying to use your "evidence" against you. "Playing dumb" is more effective in most cases.

    Less is more in this case. She says she's at fault there's no need to muddy the water. Any other witnesses?

    I really do appreciate it. I installed the dashcam to save my own ass from shit like this. It's sobering that something used to help you out in incidents like this can also be used to incriminate you. Guilty until proven innocent I suppose.

    Yeah I have information for the woman that was directly behind me when it happened. She was also in the "turning lane" - I will use that term loosely

    If the driver denies ever being there and never files a claim, then yes this video is a great help. In the case of the accident being 100% their fault, it probably isn't the best evidence. I know that all insurance companies will make a full investigation regardless of driver statements. So, even if she admits guilt at the site, she may change her mind later. If the police show up and "charge" someone with the accident, then it's hard for the insurance company to re-assign guilt. If so, then you would get a copy of the accident form, and it would show "driver charged with accident". Remember, her insurance doesn't want to pay 100% of this accident, so they are looking for ways to pull money from somewhere.

    Here you go! I like that it gives a nice rough look to it. However I do plan to eventually change the grill with a matching color and black mesh. My priority mod list is suspension leveling and rims/tires first.
