n. a state law which sets standards of care by the driver of a car to a non-paying passenger. Although state laws vary, the basic concept is that the social passenger can bring suit for negligence against the driver for gross negligence only if the driver could have foreseen that his/her actions or car could put the rider in great peril. Examples: driving while drunk, going far over the speed limit, playing "chicken," taking chances, driving a car knowing the brakes are faulty, or particularly continuing the reckless driving after the passenger has asked the driver to stop or asked to be let out. See also: guest

    Я очень креативная, я очень ленивая, я большой патриот, и когда встаю на весы, я восклицаю О, my God! А ещё я рифмоплёт :) Вот как то так.... 0_о Im from Belarus. I live in Zaslavl. Im looking for friends all over the planet, and I&# 39; m against international discord ( including Ukraine). In me there is blood Ukrainians, Belarusians, and I am against the separation of peoples. And we, Belarusians, not Bulbash people like everyone else, we eat the same thing as you. :)))))))))) Sorry for the mistakes, I do not know much English and I use a translator.
