I was driving to work today and turned onto a three lane road when all of a sudden a young mother with two small children popped out of the bushes on the roadside and I was at that time accelerating rather quickly (up to the speed limit, I should clarify, not over). I slammed on the brakes and within seconds she and some people that saw it are converging on me and swearing and telling me off, 'you could have killed them'. Well, heres some news, I told them that 'thier mother could have killed' them as she crossed in front of cars on a three lane road, popping out of an obscured roadside just 5 metres from a traffic light pedestrian crossing. Nope, didn't go down well, they tried calling the cops, tried to stitch me up for something worse and it made me wonder if there hadn't been small kids involved and if they were teenagers, people would be shaking their heads at them. So, now I am a 'homocidal driver' and should be charged with 'attempted murder'. I wasn't too hard on any of them as their adrenaline was rushing and they were obviously shocked, but for goodness sake.
