Dowling v Dargue (1997)

A car was travelling from a side road onto a main road intending to turn right.

Vehicles on the main road had stopped to allow the car to carry out its manoeuvre. A motorcyclist overtook the stationary traffic on the main road and struck the front driver's side door/wing of the car as it emerged out from the junction.The motorcyclist was travelling on the wrong side of the road and within the zigzag area of a pelican crossing. The car driver was travelling faster than merely edging out.
