To the concerned motorist

Posted By on Sat, Dec 14, 2019 at 10:59 AM

I was walking to the bus stop a couple of weeks ago. As I was crossing a sidewalk with a walk sign on Oxford Street, some absolute moron whose windows were fogged-up blew through the oncoming traffic, narrowly avoided hitting a school bus and almost ran me down. I was furious, because in the last few days prior to this I've had way too many close calls with distracted drivers in the Quinpool area. After trying to chase down the guy, I walked back up the road to where my bus stop was, and discovered you had been pulled over waiting to ask if I was alright. It was a very kind gesture, so I wanted to say thank you very much, and I hope you never end up in an accident because of the fault of someone who shouldn't have a driver's license.
