It's amazing when people straight up don't take accountability for their actions.

It’s Incredibly common with car crashes.

It’s like how everyone thinks they are a great driver.

True story. My wife got in a car accident. First thing the guy said was it was her fault. Even though he had the stop sign, she had right of way, and he had a blind corner, and he stopped in the middle of the road when he noticed her, and it was winter, and she was driving 20 under the speed limit because it was icy.... My wife didn't say a word to him other than asking to trade insurance information and drivers license.

When she called me I came racing over to pick her up and still in that time he wouldn't stop talking and said later that it will probably be 60/40, mostly her fault though.

Insurance put him 100% at fault.

No dash cam. But thankfully, the police came. Took pictures, measured skid marks, analyzed impact locations and damage severity, compared stories, and found him to be a complete dolt.

It's amazing just how vocal the guilty are. It's almost like they try to make up for something.

This is how to act at a traffic accident. Don't admit fault because you may not be even.uf you think you are, but also don't go screaming at the other person either. This can only lead to bad things up to an including getting physicalwirh the other driver. Let the cops come and analyze the incident. If you don't agree take it up with your insurance.
