Legal requirement to apply common sense on Court Proceedings

Comment 5th August 2010

Before any case is heard in any court there should be a legal requirement for "Common Sense" to be considered.

For example, if a burglar falls through a roof, before s/he can claim compensation the "Law of Common Sense" should be applied, ie if they hadn't been on the roof they wouldn't have fallen through,  so the case is instantly dismissed.

If a driver is charged with speeding on a motorway at 82 miles an hour when no one else is around in great weather and visibility, then  the "Law of Common Sense" should be applied and as they were not endangering anyone else the case is dismissed.

Particularly applies to:

Human Rights

Health and Safety

Compensation claims

Why does this matter?

To reintroduce common sense and personal responsibility into society
