Slippery When Wet

It’s the final month of Winter here in Perth, Western Australia and the weather this weekend is cold and we’re just about to get an entire month’s worth of rain over the coming few days. This morning I headed to the local shops for a few items before deciding to do the emergency coffee run through Maccas; I’d have gone to Dôme, however it was raining and they’ve not yet thought to offer me drive-thru for their superior offerings.

As I headed towards our local Maccas, turning at the roundabout on Connolly Drive in Currambine, I honestly though I was going to witness or be part of an accident. The driver of a white van approached at speed, yet as I continued around they didn’t slow any, it was only when I was to head down Moore Drive the van did an abrupt turn with along with me. Due to wet roads and their speed the turn almost led to the van tipping, the driver only just managing to correct things, which I was certainly grateful for; as he drove off I noticed he was a probationary license holder, hopefully today’s incident proves a wake-up call and he slows things down.
