Summary

hitting a stationary car gives you a 100% fault charge

go see example one here

go see example two here

GO SEE ICBC’s DISCUSSION OF A CAR HITTING A STATIONARY VEHICLE HERE.

Car B is parked and Car A drives down the road and smacks into Car B which is parked on the side of the road. Car A is 100% at fault.

Single-vehicle accidents make up the majority of crashes typically with trees, signs, poles, ditches or stationary objects like cars. Many drivers fear that odd bad driver but maybe the safety in your own hands more than you think!

Tow laws are referenced,

Following too closely

162   (1) A driver of a vehicle must not cause or permit the vehicle to follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of the vehicles and the amount and nature of traffic on and the condition of the highway.

(2) The driver of a commercial motor vehicle or a combination of vehicles, when driving on a roadway outside a business or residence district, must not follow within 60 m of another commercial motor vehicle or a combination of vehicles, but this must not be construed to prevent one commercial motor vehicle or a combination of vehicles overtaking and passing another.

(3) The driver of a motor vehicle in a caravan or motorcade, other than a funeral procession, outside a business or residence district, must leave sufficient space between his or her vehicle and another vehicle or combination of vehicles to enable a vehicle to enter and occupy that space without danger.

Where parking prohibited

187   (1) Subject to subsection (3), if outside of a business or residence district it is practicable to stop, park or leave a vehicle off the roadway, a person must not stop, park or leave the vehicle either unattended or attended on the roadway.

(2) Subject to subsection (3), a person must not park a vehicle so as to obstruct the free passage of traffic on the highway.

(3) Subsections (1) and (2) do not apply when a vehicle is so disabled that it is not practicable to avoid stopping and temporarily leaving it on a highway.

Great talks for your next driving lesson.
