Ripped from someones legal site :In NSW, the standard for proving negligent driving is fairly low. A driver may be found to be negligent if they did not drive in the manner that a reasonable prudent driver would have driven given all the circumstances. A determination of all of the circumstances includes including consideration of the variable factors such as weather, road and traffic conditions.
If your argument is that you need to driver to the conditions then there are no disputes there. I believe I've been saying that all along. But by definition "drive to the conditions" is nor a definitive rule conditions as it is subjective.

Huh? I very much do care. I follow that vast majority of road rules the vast majority of the time. And my driving and riding record show that I'm extremely good at staying out of collisions and fines. I would say I do a much better job of following road rules than the average citizen. Your accusation that I don't care about the laws is plainly wrong.
