The instruction does not violate a defendant's due process right to a fair trial.

A trial court properly declined to instruct a jury that a defendant's act of parking his vehicle into the gore point of a freeway constituted negligence per se since that act did not proximately cause the collision between the plaintiff's vehicle and the defendant's vehicle when the plaintiff later drove into the same gore point. Even if the court erred in refusing to issue the negligence per se instruction, the error was harmless since the jury found the defendant was not negligent for parking his vehicle in the gore point.
