SIR - I was alarmed today, though fortunately unharmed, when walking up High Street past McShaw Optometrist.
A small blue car rushed by, knocking my right arm very hard with its left-hand wing mirror.
Plainly the car came too close to the path, probably trying to avoid the huge delivery lorry parked outside Tesco store.
I expected the little car to stop and the driver enquire if I were injured. But when I reached the corner by the garden of the Unitarian Church, the car was nowhere to be seen.
I looked at my watch; the time was 9:52am. A friend was with me, walking on my left.
You may also want to watch:
I find no excuse for the driver of the car.
