So I almost got rear ended on the weekend…

On saturday night I was driving to the church Christmas party in my mom’s suv as my car is still in the shop (thats another story I might get into another time).  So I was going up one of the streets coming out of chinatown and in my lane there was a parked car, so I put on my signal to change lanes and stopped as there was a car beside me.  Then I see some headlights coming at me, I’m like whatever, then it doesn’t seem like they are slowing down so I’m like uh oh x_x.  Anyways the guy can’t go into the left lane as there is another vehicle there, the one I’m waiting to pass me so I can change lanes so what does the car do???  Well he veers to the right and jumps the sidewalk.  In the process he manages to drive perfectly down the sidewalk, and you know this was one of the wider sidewalks not the regular sidewalks as theres no way a car could fit down a regular sidewalk.  Anyways this car manages to avoid the parking meters, lightpole and the stripmall.  He had to be doing around 30 km/h when he jumped the sidewalk too so its not like he was slow putting it he hit pretty fast.  I was quite impressed and as mortified as it was to watch I was also thankful to have not gotten rear ended, I was already down one vehicle I don’t need to be down two.  Also it was quite fortunate there was no one on the actual sidewalk. 

Anyways I changed lanes passed the park vehicle and continued on my journey.  I think the car stopped for a while and just took a quick moment to realize what they had just done as it was quite an impressive feat.  Anyways in the rear view mirror I watched them slowly drive to the end of the sidewalk and get back on the road.
