Note: based on my knowledge of Korean laws)
Let’s say your minding your own business driving your BMW down the road in Korea. You get a green light and the road is clear. You begin to make your left hand turn. Some stupid idiot motorcyclist driving crazy comes out of no where and dies on your windshield. The law allows the judge to award 5-10% of the damages(your fault) on you for not looking to make sure some dumb idiot was driving crazy.
This is a hypothetical example based on limited knowledge of Korean driving laws. My friend had something similar to this happen to him. The other driver made up some bull story to the judge and got 10% of the damages stuck on my friend.
