Negligence - Duty of care - Motorist - Duty to drive with reasonable care and skill - Traffic lights - Pedestrian - Contributory negligence - Apportionment of liability - Motorist injuring pedestrians crossing road at traffic lights.
Where a motorist's view of a pedestrian crossing at traffic lights had been obscured by a juggernaut in the near side lane, the fact that the lights were green had not absolved him from using reasonable care in proceeding. However, pedestrians using the crossing had failed to look adequately before passing the juggernaut and had been 80% contributorily negligent for the resulting accident.
