Close encounter

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.
