Road Wise

MG countryroadScanOne of the most common proceedings I interpret is the vehicular accident deposition. The line of questioning is pretty standard.  The responses are a bit more varied. But here is one response that I have heard three times now. And every time I hear it, I smile quietly to myself.

Question: What street were you driving on when the impact occurred?

Response:   XYZ Street.

Question: How many lanes are there on XYZ Street?

Response:  Two. One in each direction.

Question:   What lane were you driving in?

Response: The middle one.
