One morning I was turning left and sun was in my eyes I did not see the guy on the bike in the cross walk till it was to late but as soon as I saw him I stopped I bump his back tire Emt came and took him to hopital No more details . So do I go to court and fight the ticket or go to school. I was going 10 mph the ticket say 40mph this is while turning left.

  • They can't tell you how he is doing because once he becomes a patient at a hospital the doctors and staff are required by HIPPA to keep his information private.

    Why do you think you were set up? You think the bicyclist jumped into the walkway on purpose to get hit by you so that he could sue? I guess that's possible, but it doesn't seem likely. Do you have a really nice car? Or at least a new shiny car? If your car isn't new within the last two or three years (brand new, not just new to you) then I would doubt that you were set up.

    I'd just go to traffic school and put the whole mess behind you. Otherwise you're just going to drag it out and it will cost you a lot more money. Plus, no one is sympathetic to a driver who hits someone who was not in a car. You'll have a really hard time finding a judge or a jury that would take your side.

  • It cant hurt to fight it. But it would probably be less of a hassle to just go to driving school

  • You can take driving school classes online. If you think they were wrong on the ticket then I'd fight that. If you were going 40 miles per hour around a corner and hit someone he'd more than likely be hurt pretty bad since you'd have to practically be on two wheels to make that turn! I guess it's all in what you are comfortable with.

  • I took the driving school and it was fun no kidding and your right the person I hit I may not win in court nor should I I was up set over the speed and no last name on the ticket that all.
