Say what you like . . . it was NOT the fault of the Lambrghini driver! This accident would be measuredby the impact point on the intervening car. If the impact is more towards the back of the (intervening) car - meaning any point from the central pillar. Therefore it is clear that the intervening car pulled out in front of the Lambrghini and it does not matter what speed the Lambrghini was doing. If he was speeding - then he will get prosecuted for that offence, but he will not lose his no claims discount!

Yes it was - he was clearly speeding (breaking the law), and going too fast (putting others in danger).

The Mazda did pull out in front of him - this is necessary sometimes, otherwise you'd never be able to turn right on such a busy street. He did it slowly so that the L driver had time to see him and slow down, but the L driver tried to squeeze through a gap that just wasn't there.

Had the L-driver been driving properly, then there would have been no problem. Had the M driver not pulled out, it would still have been very dangerous. Notice how, even after crashing, the L nearly hurtles across a zebra crossing. Would he have been able to stop if a child had stepped out?

A busy street is no place to play boy-racer.

We have no idea what speed the Lamborghini was doing and it is highly unlikely anyone ever will so it can never be proven if they were breaking the limit. Despite this, even if the Lamborghini was speeding, the Mazda is more at fault as they entered the road causing the obstruction.

This could be discussed for hours, however, in this instance the Mazda driver wiill be found at fault (rightly in my opinion) and have some huge premiums upon their car insurance renewal.

There are numerous methods that could be used to determine that the L was speeding. Impact damage, stopping distance, eyewitness accounts, the onboard computer and the video itself. There are also other videos floating about showing it being driven by an idiot in the build up.

The claims handler would be a fool to settle for anything less than the L's underwriter to pay in full. Most insurers don't even rate premiums on non-fault claims - certainly not at renewal. Even if it was a fault claim, the value of it is unlikely to be used for premium rating, as it is not predictive of future claims experience or retention. Besides, none of the aggregators ask for this information at NB.

It appears you can't tell the difference between a man and a woman.
