What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Ohio
My 17 year old son was recently cited for an assured clear distance violation in Hudson, Ohio. The "accident" took place at 4:45pm on icy roads near our home. The car in front of him stopped to turn left into the same street he was also turning left into and as he was nearing a stop behind the vehicle he hit a patch of black ice and slid into the back of the other car. It was estimated that he was travelling at less than TWO miles per hour at the time of the accident and neither vehicle sustained any damage. Neither driver was injured in any way. The 25 year old my son "hit" attempted to file a claim with his insurance carrier (same carrier that I have) and the adjuster denied the claim as he was unable to find any damage or injuries due to the accident. And yet my son was cited.
Can i contest this? The vehicles literally just touched.....and this was on an icy road at dusk.What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
