Is the driver behind at fault for moving forward before the driver ahead of them moved forward? That wouldn't be the case if the issue was a stall or such.
Nope? Is that presuming you lied, and it was just a "He said she said" situation, where its just your word against theirs? With more people having dash cam/go pros, traffic cameras at intersections, security cameras on nearby buildings, other motorist/pedestrian witnesses, or computers in modern cars that can say how fast a car was moving at the time of the collision or just prior, its not as easy to get away with blaming the other guy.
Went to the school parking lot for a while and practiced starting up the hill. Didn't stall. Kinda figured out the point where the clutch grabs enough that you can let off the brake and give it a buncha gas to get moving without going too far back. Definitely rolled back like cray the first few times.
Gonna try doing it with the parking brake next time, but I'd rather just learn the hard way. Then again, it seems like the parking brake maneuver is necessary on steeper hills, so might as well learn it.
I honestly think I'm stalling because I just don't give it enough gas, which is kind of hilarious.
I like thinking about you dealing with the Honda service department. Getting a ride in one of those crappy service mini-vans, car pooled with a bunch of randos. Getting out of the van realizing your bespoke jacket in dat Dormeuil fabric has some stain from something a previous rider left behind.
