Gorringe v Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council 
- Gorringe drove too fast over the brow of a steep hill on a road, and collided with a bus
- Gorringe suffered severe physical injuries
- Was the council liable for now painting ‘slow’ on the road to warn road users of the danger of the hill’s crest
- No duty
- Common law duties cannot grow parasitically out of broad public duties, in this case to warn of every possible danger or face severe liability
