actually, when said motorcycle is travelling 120mph or better, it’s not automatically your fault. He was NOT there when I started my turn, and came over the top of the hill at a minimum of 120 or so. And I did look at least twice, if not 3 times. There are no hard and fast rules. I know of several cases where a person rear ended someone and it turned out to be the person being hit’s fault. In my situation, I had at least 2 former law enforcement officers tell me it was NOT my fault.
And as for the cop trying to make the streets safer, that’s a crock of sh*t. Highway patrol here in Florida do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to make the streets safer. They want to write seat belt violations, not tickets on the people cutting others off, or the ones travelling in excess of 100mph.

If you hit someone in the rear it is automatically your fault because
it is assumed you were following too close, even if the idiot pulled
out in front of you! If you pull into traffic oncoming traffic has
the right of way so even if it looks as if no one is coming always do
a complete stop, look both ways and back again because if you hit
somenoe as you pull into traffic it is your fault. After all, what if
you were the one traveling dowon the road and someone pulled out into
