The other day we were walking through the main shopping street of our small town. It was Sunday, so there were only a few people around. Behind us we heard the sound of a vehicle. The street is block-paved for pedestrians, but vehicles are allowed through at certain times, so we stepped aside.
A 4x4 zoomed past at about 40mph. A narrow street, lined with small shops. In those surroundings, 40mph is fast - insanely dangerous too. Good job we didn't wander across the street and aren't hard of hearing. No point making an issue of it though. It's only a slice of daily life isn't it - one of those crazy slices?
