Cops found the other driver at fault and even gave her a ticket. Too bad. Other driver's insur. told my fiance they weren't gonna pay because her being on the road at all constituted 1% of responsibility. And since she didn't have collision, her car was totalled and she didn't get a dime out of it.
That's just plain wrong. As in messed up.
