The classic test for the imposition of a duty of care was articulated in Caparo Industries v Dickman. Accordingly, a duty of care will exist only where there is foreseeability, proximity and if the imposition of a duty of care is fair and reasonable in the circumstances.  .Norris argues that in applying the test articulated in Caparo, it is necessary to determine whether or not a duty of care was assumed by the defendant and whether or not it was reasonable for the plaintiff to rely on the defendants assumption. It is important to note, however, that the assumption of responsibility and reliance on the duty are not conclusive evidence of the existence of a duty of care, but maybe one of the ways in which the necessary degree of proximity may arise.On the facts of the case for discussion, Alan asked John to take his keys from him if he drank too much that night at Johns house. The two proceed to drink two bottles of wine followed by brandy coffee. . It was stated how the wines were proportioned out between them and whether or not Alan drank too much throughout the evening. . Regardless, Alan indicated that he felt able to drive and nothing was made of it. . In any event, it does not appear that the consumption of alcohol had anything to do with the accident. . The fallen tree was the cause of the accident and the main question is whether or not, Johns call to Allan caused him to collide with the fallen tree and whether or not John assumed responsibility for preventing personal injury to John when he placed that telephone call.
