Mo­torist makes Twit­ter apol­ogy

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A RE­PEN­TANT mo­torist took to Twit­ter to post a se­ries of apolo­getic tweets af­ter jump­ing a red light in Hilling­don.

Ad­dress­ing a fam­ily that had been wait­ing at the lights at the Hilling­don Pa­rade cross­ing, the driver ex­pressed his feel­ings of guilt and apol­o­gised for the po­ten­tial harm his ac­tions could have caused.

The man posted seven mes­sages on Twit­ter within min­utes of the in­ci­dent apol­o­gis­ing for his ac­tions, which he put down to his ‘com­pla­cency’.

Among the tweets was one which read: “Run­ning a red light is dan­ger­ous. I was dis­tracted by thoughts, fam­ily ar­gu­ing in the car, and care­less­ness on my be­half. But no ex­cuses.”

He went on to say: “If that fam­ily took one step, it could have been a dis­as­ter, all be­cause of my com­pla­cency.”
