  • I live in CA Car accident help?

    I was driving my husband's registered car, and it has insurance, I was on my way home when a car hit from the side when she was pulling out from a street parking space while the light was green. I said it was my fault since it was my first accident and I was nervous and I had my son and I'm 7m pregnant but it wasn't. I didn't know I was an excluded driver in my husband insurance until I called out insurance to file a claim. The adjuster then said to me that they can't help me because I was excluded from his policy and basically everyone in our household is too. We have had his insurance for 3 years and we were NOT aware of this. Now she is using my words against me stating that I said it was my fault. When it was obvious she pulled out suddenly. Her front bumper was taken off and she used my nervousness and helping her to get to her house after she pulled the whole bumper off and load it in my car to say it was my fault. She dented my left passenger side and scratched it and tore a part of my bumper. Now I am left by myself and her insurance hasn't even come to see my car or anything. I keep calling and no one is responding. We didn't not call the police and I am licensed but now I don't know what to do. My husband nor I have every been in an accident. Please help. Am I liable for damages and will I lose my license? We went to unexcluded myself from the insurance but it's too late now. What should I do now?

  • Do bikers need real leather jackets to protect them?

    This may be a very stupid question and I apologize for that. I am 16 years old and I am thinking of buying a motorcycle instead of a car. I've always loved them and I've ridden on the back of motorcycles before and it is such an awesome feeling. I realize that this is dangerous and I accept that. I will also ride very safe and wear all protective gear needed, even in the hot summer when I won't want to. My parents approve and I have already saved up about $650. I hear I can get a used starter bike for about $1500. I know that bikers wear leather jackets to protect them in case they fall or get in an accident, and I am wondering, to be safe while riding do I need a real leather jacket or can it be faux leather? I am very against wearing leather and fur because I don't think animals should be killed so their skin/fur can be worn on people. Do you think in the event of a motorcycle accident, a good faux leather jacket would protect me from serious injuries? Of course, I would also be wearing a good helmate, boots, and gloves. I apologize for such a long question, and thank you to anybody who answers.

  • Car help? Oil light is on?

    I got an oil change about 2 months ago, still have another 5000 to go before I'm expected for another one. My oil light turned on so I brought it to the shop, they hooked it up to the computer and everything, and it didn't show anything was wrong. So I brought it home and now the light is on, but the thing is; it's only one when I'm stopped or at low rpm. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this ? Oil levels are fine. My mechanic is really good to, he's always been thorough and fixed any problem I had so I'm confused.

  • Really bad driver?

    So today was my first time behind the wheel alone (G2 in Ontario), and it was a disaster. The first was leaving a parking lot. A bus was letting people on so I edged out to check around it to turn left (the bus was on the road). I started making my turn and the bus pulled out, forcing me to go really fast to make the turn and almost geting hit. The second was when there was a "no right turn on red" sign. I was observing the intersection and I noticed a light in the distance change to green arrow pointing at the way I was going. I thought it was for me, but it was for the cars going the other way. So I went and ended up hopping the curb while making the turn. The entire day has been a mess and I just wish it never happened. I'm not sure what to think and I feel like I'm not deserving of my liscence... I feel I'm too dangerous but at the same time I don't

  • When is it time for a new car or a new to you one?

    Hi Wondered what do people experience or what clues do peoples cars provide to tell them it's time to start thinking about a new/newer car And also when the speedo reads 200,000-300,000 ish km depending on person why do people start thinking of a newer one and start looking for car deals when there might not be anything wrong with theirs and get a newer one when the right deal comes What makes people start think about lookin for deals when the speedo is past 200,000-300,000km depending on person when there might not currently be anything wrong with theirs Do they just loose so much value after that time and people rely on proceeds from their old one and like to sell up while there still worth decent money Some trade up at certain mileage weather there's currently anything wrong but most usually wait till they start having problems and it's high mileage and some buy a 5 grand car and either drive it for a few years or until it dies then get another 5 grand car, hard to say because it depends on person
