Close Encounter of the Wrong Kind

Gus Philpott
Woodstock Advocate
August 24, 2008


Nissan Titan


This morning I was almost hit head-on by this vehicle (Illinois license 68 497H), when the driver made a w-i-d-e right turn from westbound South Street onto northbound Dean Street by the Unitarian Church. (Click on photo to enlarge for a good look at it.)

He must have been thinking about a delicious breakfast at Angelo's Restaurant, because he sure wasn't thinking about his right turn. He crossed completely over the center of the roadway into the southbound lane on Dean Street and then wasn't in any hurry to get back into the northbound lane.

I was taking a non-driving senior citizen home from church, as I do each Sunday morning. I was able to stop and allow room for this pick-up truck driver to get back on his side of the road. After dropping the senior citizen off at her home, I drove back to the Square.

Notice the careful parking job done by the driver, as he parked well back from the vehicle in the space ahead of him. Lucky for him that parking space abuse is not ticketed in Woodstock.
