I had an accident yesterday. I ran up the back of the car in front and accept that I am therefore at fault legally, and it will be my excess that has to be paid.
We had been sitting in bumper to bumper traffic (on Pennant Hills Rd) for 40 minutes. Traffic finally started moving, it was clear in front, but the car in front slammed its brakes on for no apparent reason. I braked, but not quickly enough.
So, obviously I was following too close, my bad, but that is more common and expected than just slamming brakes on for no reason! Maybe the guy in front dropped his cigarette and that's why he braked. He did apologise to me, I think he knew it wasn't entirely my fault. I'm extremely frustrated, will be without a car for 2 weeks!
So, if you hit someone from behind, are you always in the wrong?!
I'm not expecting everyone to agree with me, but I needed to vent
