Driving - I've been driving regularly since I was in my 20s, but since coming back to England I've been a nervous driver.
This morning I've made a decision - to give up my license.
I was turning right from our street and saw a car coming in the opposite direction, so intended to brake and reverse, because there's only one lane due to parked cars..
But my foot got stuck under the brake pedal and I pushed the accelerator instead . Our car is automatic so you only use your right foot and the pedals are close.
I was speeding towards the other driver and thank God swerved at the last minute and cleared him via the left pavement . Otherwise a headon crash .
I have a problem with lifting my right foot - hip damage.
So I saw this as a warning sign. Husband drives, and public transport is good here.
