Driver a real lifesaver

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

I was on my way to the Univer­sity of Man­i­toba. The traf­fic light was red when I reached the in­ter­sec­tion of Pem­bina High­way and Univer­sity Cres­cent. Two rows of cars were lined up wait­ing. Mine was first in line on the inside lane. When the light turned, I be­gan to pro­ceed into the in­ter­sec­tion. All of a sud­den, a car horn sounded to the right of me. Act­ing more on re­flex than any­thing else, I put my foot on the brake to see what the com­mo­tion was about. As I did that, a sil­ver car sped past di­rectly in front of my car. The driver had run the red light. Had the woman in the grey car to the right of me not honked her horn when she saw the sil­ver car com­ing, I would have been creamed. After paus­ing a mo­ment to take in what had just hap­pened, our cars con­tin­ued on. While I don’t know who the woman in the grey car is, she might well be read­ing this. If she does, I want to tell her I am ever so grate­ful for her ac­tions that morn­ing. She saved me from what would have been a se­ri­ous mishap.
