Nearly got me

Discussion in 'Your Near Misses - A Place to Vent' started by Pjcliffo, Nov 11, 2013.

  1. Busy suburban road in Sydney outside primary school 4pm beware! A Mum in people mover is trying to reverse park, I prepare to pass and she changes her mind and pulls back into the road, no indicator.
    I go behind her, she goes 50 meters then pulls over to the gutter on the left, no indicator. I prepare to go past she does a u turn!! Right in front of me. I didn't know my street triple brakes were so powerful, lucky I had good tyres as no lock up but thrown against the tank.
    Don't know how I missed her, managed to blast the horn as went past. If I hadn't been so shocked I would have gone back to discuss her driving!
    Be careful out there people.

  2. And the gov'ment would have you believe speeding is the biggest danger in school zones, what a joke
