The above case made interesting reading as an emerging party is usually held 100% liabile . 

The Judge was of the view that the driver knew, or ought to have known that emerging blindly even at a very low speed posed a significant risk to a motorcyclist who might be overtaking stationary or slow moving traffic.  However the motor cyclist was aware the traffic was slow moving and at times stationary.  He ought to have known that a vehicle could emerge.
It is therefore important as a vehicle driver that you pay attention to the road ahead , don't overtake close to a junction and always  be aware of emerging vehicles into slow moving traffic because if someone pulls out in front of you at a junction, you may be held partly to blame.
