Who is to Blame?

Insurance claims and explanations.

* No one was to blame for the accident but it would never have happened if the other driver had been alert.

* I didn't think the speed limit applied after midnight.

*I had been shopping for plants all day and was on my way home. As I reached an intersection a hedge sprang up, obscuring my vision and I did not see the other car.

* The indirect cause of the accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth.

*I was going at about 70 or 80 mph when my girlfriend reached over and grabbed my testicles so I lost control.

*I was on the way to the doctor with rear end trouble when my universal joint gave way causing me to have an accident.

*On approach to the traffic lights the car in front suddenly broke.

*The accident was caused by me waving to the man I hit last week.

*Windshield broke. Cause unknown. Probably Voodoo.

*No witnesses would admit having seen the mishap until after it happened.

*I had been learning to drive with power steering. I turned the wheel to what I thought was enough and found myself in a different direction going the opposite way.

*The accident happened when the right front door of a car came round the corner without giving a signal.

*I had been driving for forty years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident.

*I left for work this morning at 7am as usual when I collided straight into a bus. The bus was 5 miniutes early.

*An invisible car came out of nowhere, struck my car and vanished.

*I knew the dog was possessive about the car but I would not have asked her to drive it if I had thought there was any risk.

*The accident happened because I had one eye on the truck in front, one eye on the pedestrian, and the other on the car behind.

*I started to turn and it was at this point I noticed a camel and an elephant tethered at the verge. This distraction caused me to lose concentration and hit a bollard.
