...bloody hell that was scary

just driving along with dd1 and car is coming towards me on straight road on my side...I rather slowly thought well he must be going to turn but he carried on and then i thought oh shit he isn't going to change course or if he does which way is he going to go to my right or my left so at the last minute and feeling in slow motion and I swerved up onto the pavement and managed to avoid him and

he just carried on

I however burst into tears....he must have been absolutely high as a kite...

Have you called the police?

no we didn't get a registration or even know the colour or make of the car...he wouldn't have got far

was he a foreigner by any chance? I have done similar in Germany.

last time it happened to me I was thinking why is that car coming at me_? I only realised at the last minute that I was wrong. I am not a mad hashhead though

I've had that sort of thing happen to me in the UK on a supermarket roundabout.
A foreign car (think it was Polish) was going the wrong way round the roundabout and he swerved out of the way at the last minute and i just blasted my horn...nutter.
And today in another car park, i wanted to turn right and this silly woman stopped in the road for me to pass, but for some reason she was on the wrong side of the road so i could not move anyway (there were no spaces available anyway).
