I was first at a set of traffic lights on red.
The lights changed and I started across the junction, only to see a car coming towards me at high speed from my left with no chance or intention of stopping for the junction.
There was a Police car behind the approaching vehicle, clearly in pursuit and I was in prime position to be "T-Boned".
I pushed the throttle hard and she answered admirably, with kick in the back acceleration, clearing the junction with a fraction of a second to spare.
That was quite as close as I ever want to be to such a situation.
I've been T-Boned before, in my first Rover 75, and that was at relatively low speed. This wouldn't have ended happily at the speed the other car was travelling.
