Imagine you are the driver of a large tanker truck driving downhill on the highway at about 70 km per hour. You see a car approaching you in its correct lane. As you take a closer look you realise that the driver of the car is fidgeting behind him and looking backwards and forwards intermittently in quick succession. Yet he is driving in his own lane and there is no indication that he would move into your truck's lane. Are you obliged at this point to take any steps to prevent a possible collision? Can you be seen as negligent if you do not?
