Deb­bie the Soccer Mum has an alarm­ing habit of re­vers­ing out of her drive­way in the morn­ing at full tilt, in the rush to get kid­dies off to school. If she hap­pens to be hav­ing a bar­ney with them at the same time then con­cen­tra­tion may lapse. Such as the other day when she was re­vers­ing out and was quite obliv­i­ous to ur­gent honk­ings from some­thing di­rectly in her path be­hind. It was the news­pa­per de­liv­ery bloke, scared out of his wits at the rapid on­wards rush of Deb­bie’s new hitech mo­tor, which has re­vers­ing cam­eras and sen­sors and ev­ery­thing, which she ad­mits she sort of ig­nores, es­pe­cially when telling the kids off. She be­came aware of the peril just in time and pulled up mil­lime­tres from his van. “He seemed re­ally shaken up,” she said.
