I think its possible to sue if you can prove there were no signs. Personal opinion is they should take your license, sign or no, if you can't see a flagger in the road until you are about to hit him. Hope your facebook/text/browser history aren't active at time of accident too.

there need to be more investigation of the facts, if possible.

where exactly did this occur? time of day? direction?

I mean, when you almost kill a man, chances are one's driving skills aren't THAT great. sure, in retrospect, there was careful driving, but really? Then, she swerves and hits a stationary vehicle.

the best part of this story is that the flagger was not thrown into the air and killed by some woman in an SUV driving carelessly, into the glare of the sun. she should be happy she only missed 3 days of work - the flagger could easily not have returned to work because (s)he'd be under the earth in a box.

I'm sure you didn't get a citation for driving at safe speed.

Me too, no sympathy here. Hopefully an attorney or judge will laugh at any attempt to validate this.

yeah its worded weird but ive seen it too when its not really over the usual speed limit.
examples driving 70 in a torrential downpour on the parkway and ramming someone too dumb to put their lights on in front of you, or checking if your facebook post complaining about traffic has any likes, while you almost bulldoze an innocent flagger.

Maybe for driving at an UNsafe speed. Driving at a "Safe Speed" doesn't even make sense.

Yeah, that's driving at an UNsafe speed, or "too fast for conditions".

Oh yeah, typical: "you don't know me", "you weren't there". Don't forget to tell me it was a mistake! Right?
