A Near Miss

I nearly got knocked down by a car today.

And it happened in my working place car park too! I tell you, my workplace car park is really a dangerous place. Cars hardly stop or slow down for passing pedestrians, not even at the pedestrian crossings! Once, when I was still pregnant, I was on the verge of crossing the road in my company’s car park. I stood at the pedestrian crossing, and started to cross the road. A car was slowly approaching the crossing, and when the driver saw me, instead of slowing down, he sped up instead!

Terrible.

In stark contrast is my hubby’s work place. Drivers get warning letters for not stopping at pedestrian crossings, pedestrians get reprimanded for not using pedestrian crossings, and cars who do not abide by these rules are banned from entering the company’s premises.

Now that’s what I call proper enforcement.
