Avoiding a second shower
Yet again, vehicles try to squeeze through on the tail of someone else, but there just isn’t room for three abreast along Broad Lane. Today, the bus driver took their time, waiting for the path to become clear before getting as far over as they could. Even so, it was a close shave.
The overnight rain had formed a dirty stream all along the kerb from Mill Lane to school. Luckily, the jammed traffic meant that there was no chance of getting soaked. It was different story on the return journey. A couple of times I dashed for a driveway to get out of the splash zone as big lorries thundered past. I returned home dry.
Today’s scores out of 10:
Traffic volume: 9
Stupid/careless parking: 0
No. of cars parking illegally:0
