Grateful for car horn warning

I would like to thank the person who beeped his car horn constantly outside the Co-operative store in Ore Village to warn people that a car was careering across the main road towards the Sarah Lee shop in Ore without the driver, who obviously had left the hand-break off.

I was standing a couple of minutes with another lady admiring the shop window. If he hadn’t have warned us, we could have been trapped under the wheels.

Luckily, it was at 8am in the morning and there wasn’t traffic, or people walking about. It miraculously stopped about 18 metres away from the window of the shop.
