    this morning, my fault totally :(
    It was at a cross roads with traffic lights, the direction I was going in turning right the oncoming traffic has two options. I drive here every day, don't know what I was thinking, I drove right infront of oncoming traffic :( :blushing:
    Thank god the other driver was paying attention
    I've only ever done something like this once before and that was over 25 years ago not long after passing my test.
    If that was a senior moment, it's a little worrying :(
    I have noticed that my spelling is getting quite bad too ;)

    Are you okay? That must have been a fright for you! Hopefully its just a one off

    I have done stuff like that! :blushing: So it can happen to anyone, just means you were concentrating less than normal.

    I'm ok thanks, didn't even notice until I had almost gone past, so no heart stopping moment, the other driver must have had one though :blushing:

    I think we all have 'moments' no matter how old we are.
    The main thing is no harm done and you are all OK.
    I think sometimes if it's a route we drive everyday we sometimes go into auto pilot.

    Glad ur ok Rona.

    I had a heart stopping moment this week when a cat ran in front of my car....I was actually screaming "NOOO!" as I swerved...I know u are supposed to keep driving, but there's no way I could do that!!!

    Luckily the cat was fine....I was a bit goose bumpy but fine after!
