A Guilty Motorist Turns Himself In
from Ben’s Musings:
As I left the garage in a stressed state, I drove through a pedestrian crossing on red lights startling a mother pushing a pram, but missing her by some way. I immediately realised what an utterly stupid thing I had just done and when we got home, before heading out to lunch, I felt so guilty and gutted at my foolishness. So I phoned the local police to confess.
The lady I chatted to seemed quite confused and had to put me on hold to find out what to do! She eventually returned and told me that I was very lucky becuase they had no other reports of the incident and until they do, they wouldn’t take it any further. I asked why since I was confessing as a witness so she explained that they have many people trying to get attention from the police by admitting to crimes they hadn’t committed. I felt like vehemently defending myself from being such a person but i thought I would seem more suspicious if I did so.
