In <em>Yetemian v. Vega</em>, the Supreme Court, Queens County denied a road test operator's application for summary judgment against his student driver following a motor vehicle accident that occurred when the student driver lost control of the vehicle during a driving test. The court ruled that the plaintiff inspector, a licensed operator, knew that the defendant was unlicensed and was aware of the dangers of driving with an unskilled driver and, thereby, assumed the risk of such an accident occurring.
