Near death experience

Or, "The hospital almost didn't have an on-call pharmacist today". O_o

Seriously? Some days, the roads are safer than the cycle routes.

I was making my way to work, as I usually do, on the cycle route (OK, double-duty-cycle-route/pavement) as it's smoother and nicer than the road... and a little black car shot out of a driveway and almost knocked me off. They looked like they'd braked, as the car jolted-... then they kept going!

There must have been less that a foot of space between them and me - and had I gone with my instinct (seeing the bumper emerge from behind ENORMOUS HEDGE™©) and braked, they WOULD have hit me. (Split second evaluation and I realised I wasn't going to stop in time.)

Seriously, guy, if you can't see what's coming, bolt a damn mirror to your gatepost. >:( I could have been a pedestrian. (I'd literally just overtaken two elderly people walking a few yards back.)

*manages to slow heart-rate*

(On the up side, I did manage my journey in 12 minutes 30 seconds. :) )
