Plaintiff sued to recover for damages sustained when a negligent defendant collided with plaintiff's car. An unlicensed operator was driving plaintiff's car at the time. A state statute prohibited the operation of an automobile by an unlicensed driver, and specifically provided that no person shall "permit" operation of his car by such a driver. Held, plaintiff may recover, as he reasonably believed that the driver was licensed. Bowdler v. St. Johnsbury Trucking Co., (N. H. 1937) 189 A. 353.
