Abramovic, 2010 BCCA 212, in which the plaintiff was found, on appeal, to be 75% contributorily negligent after she failed to stop at a stop sign or look for oncoming traffic before entering an intersection. The defendant, who saw the plaintiff enter the intersection and could have avoided the accident, but insisted on his right of way, was found 25% liable.
