    You sure are making quite an assumption there. It doesnt sound to me like it was possible to stop his car. If he was driving within the speed limit then he cannot be found to have been negligent.

    Not correct.

    Despite anyone's feelings about Boeheim, I totally feel for he and the victim.

    Just like an animal jumping out in front of you in the dark.

    Boeheim has to be a wreck.

    No pun intended.

    Listen to yourself, you literally said it wasnt possible for him to stop his car. Come on, man. You have to be able to stop your car to avoid hitting the car in front of you, or else you deserve consequences from not doing so. You absolutely can be guilty of negligent driving, even at the speed limit, if the conditions are too bad for you to stop in time to avoid a collision.

    This seems highly likely whether there's any fault on the part of Boeheim or not. I'm sure that some attorneys who have vicious animal or otherwise vaguely threatening self-given nicknames will be or already are offering the family representation.

    Of course you should be able to not hit the car in front of you. But the car in front of you is moving at a comparable speed and has brake lights. How is the comparison relevant? You seem to think that you should be able to stop on a dime, in a split second, going 65-75 on the interstate.

    You realize that assured cleared distance is calculated when the car in front of you is moving. The car Boeheim avoided was stopped.

    Where is your evidence of conditions rendering the speed limit unsafe. Likewise, even if there were such conditions where is your evidence that Boeheim was driving with a disregard of them?

    I hear Kaepernick’s case is over.

    You 100% can get cited for not maintaining assured clear distance when a car is stopped on the highway. I have had personal experience with this. Boeheim was in the wrong because he didnt stop and caused a collision. I am going to stop arguing with you now because obviously you seem to think if you're going the speed limit, you can plow over any stopped cars or people on the side of the road who shouldn't be there without having any responsibility for your actions, and I am never going to agree with you.

    Wait... I thought we were talking about civil liability. Now you want to talk about traffic citations and some bullshit that I never even remotely argued. Look... I get that you have great passion for your position, but you're talking about legal concepts you've demonstrated you dont actually understand. I'm not going to apologize for holding your hand to the fire on those concepts

    Anyone operating a vehicle, a bike or walking in a pathway (highway or even a road) is responsible for ensuring they are clearly visible for 500 ft. And visible means head lights, rear lights, reflectors or very bright colors. Failure to do so makes it no-fault.

    Physics will tell you that is is mathematically impossible to stop a car within a certain time frame in certain circumstances. That’s why every accident is different.
