A person alleging negligence will have to show that the other driver did not act reasonable in the circumstances, that the driver should have been able to foresee the damages s/he caused and should have taken reasonable steps to prevent such damages. These are some examples of negligent driving:
- driving at an excessive speed or in excess of the speed limit;
- failing to keep a proper look-out;
- failing to keep the motor vehicle under proper control; or
- drinking and driving.
