    I was once nearly struck by a car when I was walking on a zebra crossing, Just up the road from this one actually, at the bottom of Sommerhill Road.
    I am a driver, as well as a pedestrian.
    Why are some drivers so selfish?
    If you hit a person on a crossing, you really should not drive again.
    I hope that the victims are both feeling alright, and are not too shaken up.
