Nearly had an accident…

Last night driving on the way home from work I nearly had an accident.

I was changing lanes just after the interchange when I realised there was a car in my blind spot that I hadn’t seen who had only one headlight and who then flashed me and proceeded to chase me all the way to Modderfontein.

I got such a fright… I really did not see this car.. A maroon VW Polo classic with one headlight. And then this car would not leave me alone.. Initially I slowed right down and he went in front of me and braked and weaved and then I just wanted to get away from him so I sped right up – I have not driven Ruby that fast in ages –  and kept changing lanes to try lose him but he kept on my tail until I managed to slow down and take Modderfontein off-ramp.. I went round the circle and got back on the highway and drove slowly all the way home as I didn’t want to catch up to him in case he was waiting for me somewhere..

I just wanted to get home and climb into bed and cry…

Lesson learned:

Check your blind spots and check them again before changing lanes; look out for cars without working lights; don’t drive when your tired – which is difficult when you work late and work so hard during the day – every day…
