- The 2 vehicles driven by Driver A and Driver B collided at an intersection. Driver A claims they were clearing the intersection after the yellow light when Driver B entered the intersection on the red light causing the collision. Driver B claims they were in the intersection when Driver A entered the intersection on the red light and turned left in front of them causing the collision. Driver A sued Driver B for damages. A witness who had been driving behind Driver B claimed that Driver B had run a red light. Because each side said the other had run the red light it was difficult to say who was correct. A court must be very careful when weighing conflicting evidence. In the circumstances, the court established that Driver B had run a red light with the help of the evidence from an independent witness and investigating the damage to the vehicles.
- Driver B was held 100% at fault and assessed 6 SDR Points.
