This is a question Narrow Escapes

IHateSprouts tells us they once avoided getting caught up in an IRA bomb attack by missing a train. Tell us how you've dodged the Grim Reaper, or simply avoided a bit of trouble.

When I was about 10
I ran ahead of my dad while we were walking home (as you do) and stopped at a crossing. I pushed the button and waited for the green man. The traffic lights went red, but I was always told to wait for the green man, which I did. After a few seconds, the green man appeared and I took a step into the road. At that moment, a silver Mercedes (I think) whizzed past, catching a toggle on my stylish Le Coq Sportif rain coat. I was shaking with fear, almost shitting my pants. That experience has formed part of my hatred for Mercedes drivers. Thinking about it now, I can only imagine how much of a wanker that driver was.

The cunt...........

I really frequently see drivers whizz through red lights at the pedestrian crossing near my house, in a way I'm sure they don't at traffic junctions. I've seen it so often I can only assume that to some drivers, a red light somehow "doesn't count" if it is only to let pedestrians cross. Of course, the only proper response to such thinking would be a gruesome execution on the grille of a Range Rover
