An uncouth motorist
On July 10, 2012 at exactly 10:14 hours, I was walking south along Camp Road on the western side of the Road in front of the Ministry of Home Affairs Annex when a Toyota open back pick-up Registration No. PMM 336 reversed out of the parking without looking back and struck me.
Had it not been for a man who was walking about 20 feet behind me there might have been a disaster.
He saw what was happening, and shouted to the driver who stopped. I then walked to the front of the vehicle to speak to the driver but he just looked at me, waved his hand in a dismissive manner and drove off.
The vehicle seems to belong to the Joint Services. Nobody said a word to me.
I am 65 years old. I think somebody in the vehicle could at least have apologised. Sometimes I wonder about our moral standards in Guyana. I wish that someone in authority can investigate this matter and reprimand the unmannerly culprits.
