I mention the location in detail below as I know that several members of the forum will know precisely where I mean.
I was in Bentley Bridge retail park in Wolverhampton today, which was heaving with shoppers preparing for Christmas.
About to cross the road towards Argos, a woman with a toddler was in front of me. A car on the other side of the road drew gently to a halt and the woman, child and another chap stepped onto the zebra crossing.
Just in time for a clown in a Ford Focus to screech out into traffic by the Dreams shop and hurtle towards the crossing, blasting the car horn while doing so and not only narrowly missing the woman and toddler but with so little control of the car that it almost hit the stationary car on the other side of the road.
As I said earlier, the place was heaving and once the woman had regained her composure and quieted the kiddy, asked if anybody was prepared to bear witness to the incident.
I believe she ended up with a total of some eight or nine names, addresses and phone numbers, all of whom had noted the registration number of the car. One of the witnesses identified herself as an off-duty Police officer and another was, not surprisingly,( ) a local Magistrate.
An early guilty plea is, as they say, anticipated.
Would anybody care to be apprised of developments?
