I WISH to apologise to the female of our species because I called a car driver a specific part of the female anatomy.

At the time I was escorting a disabled friend up to the town, and at the narrowest part of North Street in Dunmow we were two abreast when one car came down from Market Square and another came up North Street and forced his or her way through striking me at the hip with their mirror.

I am a professional driver and to my mind it was in the excess of 30mph as after it struck me it was gone.

All my friend and I knew is that it was red; one lucky devil, as I hate to think of the consequences had this idiot stopped.

All I would I say to this person and anyone who uses this piece of road is: learn how to slow down or give way, before there is a fatality. This incident has been reported to the police and highways department.
