I was driving down a residential street in my neighborhood and some moron decided to run the stop sign at a street that dead ends on the street that I was on. I suspect that if it had been a normal intersection where he didn't have to turn (and hence slow down) I would have gotten hit. It was a total insurance commercial moment where you see it happening in slow motion. I heard tires screeching looked over, saw headlights, saw truck, saw it getting closer and actually saw the driver by the time he got it stopped right next to my truck as it drove by. It all happened in a split second but wow, adrenaline.
I always wonder what you do in those situations. My instinct is to stop and make sure everything is ok, but obviously without getting hit there was no accident so stopping is pointless. I'd complain about how it's a crappy way to start a Monday, but all things considered, I'm rather happy that I was almost hit instead of actually hit. Of the two options that's definitely the preferred one.
