Today I almost got flattened by a car reversing at speed along the road. Luckily I had paused before starting to cross, because I’d seen a cyclist (who was on the opposite side of the road to the car, but going the same way). The car in question was apparently delivering blood to the hospital down the street. Lucky it didn’t hit me I suppose – they might have had to give me the blood instead. I think somebody needs to learn how to do U-turns.
