I very nearly got hit by a car yesterday. I work downtown and walk to most places I go, so I expect close calls; but, this incident was exceptionally close. Whenever I’m crossing the street, I try to be careful and look in all directions. The vehicle that almost struck me was turning left when it shouldn’t have trying to beat oncoming traffic. Plus it was left of center. It’s very hard to predict when someone is going to do something that stupid. They could have very easily collided with cross traffic approaching the intersection as well. So, today was a “good” day because yesterday could have easily been a very, very bad day.
