I was driving down a dark road that was a 40 mile zone. A woman was parked on the other side of the road with hazard lights on - as I neared her I still couldn't see that both her side doors were open which resulted in me clipping one of the doors and denting it (also meaning I needed a new wing mirror) - who is at fault?

Sounds as if she probably was. Why was the door open and what speed were you going?

Not sure why the doors were open - but both of them were opened on to the road and I was just under the speed limit as I was passing her - I just didn't leave enough room for both unattended doors to be passed. They were fully open too not slightly ajar.

Dipped headlights on your CAR,if so you should have seen the other car with hazzard lights on and acted with due care.

With Brig on this. You should have adjusted your speed to allow for the limitation of your lights and what you could see.

 

Was she parked facing the right way?

yes sadly you are at fault.

 

though why does everyone feel their hazard lights are an EXCUSE for doing something stupid.

You are at fault, you should have slowed down to the point were you could stop within the distance you could see clearly.

Seems you already knew the answer as you have admitted.

it is because the car and the nut behind the wheel think they are going both left and right - as indicated! so something stupid has to happen!
