CASE LAW - Murdoch v Biggers
A green light doesn't always mean go unless you've had a good look to make sure that there are no hazards present before you proceed. Jennifer Biggers learned this when the vehicle she was driving collided with Carol Murdoch, who was crossing quickly in a marked crosswalk against a red light.
The judgment examines both the duty of the driver to keep a proper lookout and that the pedestrian must obey controls and not move from a place of safety into traffic. Liability was apportioned 75% to the pedestrian and 25% to the driver for the collision.
