Annotations

  • In order to constitute evidence of negligence, failure to have auxiliary brake equipment must have some causal relation between violation of this section and an accident. Herman v. Firestine, 146 Neb. 730, 21 N.W.2d 444 (1946).

  • When petition charges negligence in that defendant failed to have truck equipped with proper brakes, the evidence must sustain such allegations. Knoche v. Pease Grain & Seed Co., 134 Neb. 130, 277 N.W. 798 (1938).
