    Nonsense. This is what you saw when you pulled up to the stop sign. The left turn lane is visible and so is the vehicle in the left turn lane. Common sense would dictate that you give him a second or two. He would have made the turn without incident. 50/50 fault is fair if you can get it.

    Yes, the vehicle is visible. How is the left turn lane visible? The vehicle in that lane appears to be just like me...

    The thick white line...
    Are you a new driver?

    It's generic, for illustration purposes.

    Let's pretend for a second that it's not possible to discern that the other car is in a left turn only lane (and I don't disagree that it may be difficult/impossible to see the arrow on the pavement or the solid white line) and assume that it had no turn signal on. You STILL don't get in the sort of accident like you depicted unless you gun it off the line (at least to some extent). Even if you have the right of way, INSISTING on the right of way is a great way to get into an accident, and you'll get tagged with some measure of fault every time. Now...if the other guy claims his signal was on and stopped first and you claim the opposite and neither of you has any evidence to support yourselves or controvert what the other is saying, what's the insurer to do?
