this ‘accident’ could have been avoided the driver should have been driving even slower or even stopped, he should have anticipated that children always run out between two parked cars and taken a different route avoiding all parked cars or should he have a man with a red flag walk in front
The point is that pseudo-cleaver overpaid legal arses can argue that any ‘accident’ was someone’s fault and it is only when these people wake up to the damage they are doing to our sociality that we will get back to a more sensible situation
Eupa you’re a god botherer what is it that JC said about throwing stones and people without sin or something
anyway the same applies here, we have all had situations were we have got away with something dangerous and yet when someone doesn’t get away with the same thing we want to punish them
If you lay down in front of my car and I deliberately drove over you that is my fault. If I drive around a corner and hit a tree I have misjudged the situation and had an accident.
