What is the duty of a passenger when the auto in which he is riding is approaching a railroad crossing, or an intersection, or when the auto is going at an excessive rate of speed, or if the driver is intoxicated? When does the passenger have a duty to remonstrate with the driver and when may he rely on the skill and care of the driver? May the contributory negligence of the driver be imputed to the passenger? Note that this article deals with contributory negligence as such, and does not attempt to distinguish between results in guest statute or non-guest-statute situations.
