Question: In Glasgow Corporation v. Muir [1943] 2 A.C. 448, Lord Macmillan said:

“The standard of foresight of the reasonable man is in one sense an impersonal test. . . Some persons are by nature unduly timorous and imagine every path beset with lions; others, of more robust temperament, fail to foresee or nonchalantly disregard even the most obvious dangers.
