From my understanding of it, there is no damage so she can claim she didn't hit me..

I was rear ended a couple of months ago and I ended up with $1350 in repair costs to replace a bumper cover and bumper on a sedan. The cop refused to issue a ticket to the other driver because he said the accident was not chargeable because of minor damage to my car. I think he was annoyed that I just didn't pull over and exchange license and insurance information and not call 911. He completed a form and gave me a file number, but said there was no report number because he wouldn't file it as a case. The cop did tell the other driver that she was at fault because she hit me from behind. He told her it didn't matter why I stopped, even it was for a squirrel. She had to leave enough room to stop clear. As it was, I was stopped at a traffic light waiting for a school bus to move forward ahead of me. I didn't do anything to provoke the accident, but it didn't matter. The other driver's insurance company accepted liability, so I have no complaints about the repair.
Not chargeable? I'm surprised at that.

At least from an insurance standpoint, you are normally assigned a percentage of blame if you're involved in an accident if for no other reason than just being on the road. The only time that doesn't happen is if you're legally parked or stopped at a stop sign/light and get hit.

From law enforcement's standpoint, she rearended you at a traffic light. That is a moving violation. At the very least she should've been cited for inattentive driving.

Weird...

I hate to run off on a tangent here, but I hope that you're at least driving in the far right lane (assuming one is available) if you're driving at the posted limit. I understand the "limit" but common courtesy should be shown to drivers who want/need to exceed those speeds.

I'll never forget when I was rushing my daughter to the ER and cars were literally trying to run me off the road for passing and countless a-holes were slowing down to brake check me while they were driving the posted speeds. I understand that 99% of the time it's just someone trying to get to their destination 30 seconds sooner, but don't be that guy that acts as a traffic cop.

I always say - I don't care if you're going 65 or 165, if someone is behind you, make EVERY effort to move over. Sorry, I'll get off my soapbox now.

First, I hope your daughter is OK...

As for the lane, I was in the right lane and had to slow down for someone making a right turn, then I proceeded to go 40 in a 35 but that wasn't enough for her.. I totally hear you on the common courtesy point, that's why I was in the right lane.

You'll never last two seconds in Miami-Dade County....the left lane is made for slow drivers on their cell phones (or so they think) meanwhile &*@%HG BMW drivers think they are on a race track....I'm used to it now, but will drive a midwesterner crazy at first (oh and don't use turn signals and for some odd reason disable your center brake light too).

I appreciate your kind words and I didn't mean to direct everything back at you... my apologies. A sore point I guess. Thanks for not lashing back.

LOL...

(off topic) I was in Florida over the holidays (road trip from West Palm to Key West to Naples to Orlando) and noticed this exact same thing. Most people in Florida seem to drive in the left lane instead of using it for passing.

Re: Another reason to have a bumper guard

The left/right thing doesn't always work. It depends on the type of road your on. Believe me I have my share of a-holes in New York that drive 50 in the left lane of the expressway and parkways (especially the Prius that try to squeeze every drop of mpg out of their cars), but when your on a two-line road that has equal turning points left and right I will sometimes get an a-hole who drives right up my back on the left only for me to be making a turn in a 1/4 mile.

I've always wanted a bit of hollywood hardware for those folks.
e.g. a small missile that can be slowly popped up on the top of your vehicle, aimed rearwards.... even if just made of plastic/wood, might work.
... except in New York of course.
