Reasonable Defined.

"Reasonable Care" is that degree of care which a person of ordinary prudence would exercise in the same or similar circumstances. -Black's Law Dictionary. There is no formula for the determination of reasonableness. Yet standards of this kind are not impermissively vague, provided their meaning can be objectively ascertained by reference to common experiences of mankind." (People v. Daniels (1969) 71 Cal.2d 1119, 1129.)
Unreasonable Defined. "Unreasonable is defined as those restrictions which are wholly arbitrary, violate a fundamental public policy, or impose a burden on the use of affected land that far outweighs any benefit." (Liebler v. Point Loma Tennis Club, (1995) 40 Cal. App. 4th 1600, 1604.)
