This morning as I headed out the door to drive up the road for my regular swimming appointment, I heard the rain on the roof. As I unlocked the car I thought to myself, I’d like to stay dry before I have to get wet, so I grabbed a high-vis raincoat from the coat hook, threw it on over my trackies and togs and headed off, headlights on full beam into the dark morning.
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away … Well it seems like it! One evening some years ago now I remember watching a TV documentary about truck drivers. I remember the interviewer talking to one driver about his job and the sights that he saw from his second storey office, way above the rest of the traffic. One thing this driver said to the interviewer stuck like glue to me: he said that accidents are only ever caused by three things: Impatience, Ignorance and Inattention. I think he’s right.
