Dann v Hamilton [1939]

Plaintiff accepted lift in motor vehicle from
defendant who was obviously drunk.
Could defendant rely on volenti?
Asquith J in Divisional Court:
Volenti did not apply to this situation
unless the drunkenness was so extreme and so glaring that accepting a lift was
equivalent to ‘intermeddling with an unexploded bomb’.
Passenger did not impliedly consent to negligent
acts.
