As a six year old, I did the classic of running out from behind a parked car onto a busy main road.
The cars tend to do about 40-50mph on that stretch.

There was a car coming, and it's front wheel came so close to my back heel that it went over the back of my trainer and took it off.

I did this

Done this also

I had this done to me
by a fucking black cab driver in Glasgow city centre.

I was on a bloody green man, too, and he was running a red.

By way of karma I now *never* let a black cab out.
