Testimony to God’s Goodness
I left work as usual. It was a fine dry evening and I enjoyed the walk through the park to where I had left my car that morning. I drove out of the car park and made my way around the roundabouts and dual carriageways of Stevenage towards the motorway for the trek London-bound.
At this time of evening I could expect the traffic at the last roundabout before the motorway to be backing up and I would sit and listen to the radio as I stop-started the final hundred metres to freedom. On a straight dual carriageway with a 40mph speed limit I was surprised to see little waiting traffic in my lane, so I left my braking later than usual. When I did put my foot on the brake pedal, it went straight to the floor! I watched the car in front getting closer as my 35mph speed showed no signs of getting any slower. As I braced myself for the impact with the only car waiting to enter the roundabout, it moved forward!
