Foster (1) v Maguire (2) Irwell Construction Ltd (2001)

A cyclist collided with a van and trailer blocking the cycle lane in which she was travelling.

The court found that the cyclist was to be held 70% contributory negligent due to the fact that it was reasonably foreseeable that she risked injury by the van and trailer blocking the cycle lane. She failed to keep a proper lookout for her own safety and, as a result, collided with the rear of the van.
