Crash­ing bore

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

Mak­ing my weary way home after a long day at Telegraph Tow­ers, a car al­most ploughed into mine.I was on a round­about turn­ing right when I spot­ted a car hurtling to­wards me. The road was wet and he had no in­ten­tion of stop­ping. I hit my brakes to avoid a col­li­sion and the driver sped off left from the round­about. I was about 150 yards be­hind him when he lost control on a bend and smashed into a wall side on. I was first on the scene and stopped to help the driver. He was a very lucky man, he didn’t have a scratch on him al­though he was in shock. Some peo­ple from nearby houses came out and called an am­bu­lance so I left them to it. Think­ing about it later my con­cern for the driver turned to anger – he could have killed some­one his driv­ing was so ap­palling. I thought about call­ing the po­lice. I didn’t be­cause I was pretty sure that given it was a one-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent with no in­juries, the po­lice would not be in­ter­ested.

I have no crit­i­cism of the po­lice (al­though don’t get me started on the politi­cians), but what a sad state of af­fairs it is when peo­ple like me are giv­ing up on the po­lice for in­ci­dents like this.
