Brake, Dodge or Drive on?

Divine Code for December 11, 2022

Today: Page 342

Topic 3:15 -- 3:16

If one is driving on a road and a pedestrian is suddenly encoutered in the car's lane, the pedatstrian is not considered to be a pursuer if the driver can stop or swerve without causing a fatal accident.

But if someone on foot just walks onto the highway and swerve or brake would cause a fatal accident on the highway, it is permissible for the driver to continue forward and fatally strike the person who is suddenly in his lane.

Curious about the whole page? You can read it in The Divine Code.
