Accident Investigation: Law+Physics
posted by Cicilia on .
What exactly do these following driving violations mean? I'm not a driver, so I'm not entirely sure of their meanings...
-Following too closely [does that count if a car crashes into another?]
-Reckless driving [does that count if a car crashes into another?]
-Inadequate brakes [what if a car was speeding and couldn't brake/stop in time, so it crashed into another car? Does that count?]
This is actually for a physics problem, but we have to apply real-world laws to it.
Thanks in advance! =)
All of your answers are right.
Usually these driving violations are considered illegal after a car crashes into another car.
Thanks Ms. Sue!!!
But for "inadequate brakes", is it supposed to be only the car's problem (brakes don't work properly), or can it the driver's problem (didn't react in time) too?
You're welcome, Cicilia.
Inadequate brakes are those that don't work right. I don't think it has anything to do with the driver's reaction time.
Okay! Thanks for all of your help! :)
