Well I definitely confirmed we are not a no fault state unless you were in a parking lot? Maybe that was it? Or was the accident in another state?

My accident was at the intersection of queens and queens (could it be more confusing?) in Myers park.

This is the street view in google: <click here>

I was going straight in the 2nd lane and the other party was making a left from opposite direction into "Edgehill Rd South". Accident happened around 5:15 pm Friday evening... peak commute hour.

This seems to be universal and not limited to Charlotte drivers.

Twice in the past two days I've been cut off by drivers turning right on a red light who don't seem to be aware that they need to come to a complete stop and make sure there's no oncoming traffic before turning right on a red light. The only time that you can turn right on a red without stopping is if you have a separate green arrow.

The one today was, of course, yammering away on her phone that she was holding to her left ear with her left shoulder, so there's no way that she could even see oncoming traffic from the left.

Also, don't most cars sold today come with Bluetooth? I see people in brand new high end cars (Mercedes, BMW) holding a phone to their ears. Those HAVE to come with Bluetooth, right? If not, a decent Bluetooth earpiece can be had for around $30. So...why not?
