Overall this law applies to a driver if it can be shown that they were confronted with what appeared to be an emergency or dangerous situation, they did not contribute to the emergency, and when faced with the situation, they acted like a rational person would in similar circumstances. The law of sudden emergency does not apply, however, if the driver contributed to the emergency.
