Heading to work and a little girl ran out in front of me, lucky I was paying attention and slammed the brakes on, but I was shaking when I got in.

OMG Fi are you ok? Did her mum say anything? How old was the girl?

Oh god, how awful - not surprised you're shaking.

What happened was that they had crossed half way and they were stood in the middle. I saw them cross from a bit back. The little girl (she must have been about 7 or 8) ran right in front of me, but her mum was in the middle. The mum didn't say anything to me, I mouthed sorry, even though, it should have been the little girl saying sorry to me. I think that she was getting told off. I let the mum cross before I drove away again.
I am ok now, thank you x

The mum was probably in shock too which is why she didn't say anything to you. I'm glad you're feeling ok now xx

Sadly on my way to work it is a regular event. I've got to the stage that there are places I daren't go fsater than 15 mph. Have you had a sugary drink it does help with the shock although I do tend to find I'm shaky for hours afterward... although it might sound extreme I can usually fidn the child and speak to them about it.
