Every once in a while, a driver heading south on Main Street — past Rye Ridge Deli on the right, and Brooks Corner on the left — will ignore the several large “One Way/Do Not Enter” signs.
And the oncoming traffic. And two rows of parked cars, one on either side of the street, all facing the same way.
When it does, the wrong-way driver will get all embarrassed and shame-faced. Then, v-e-r-y s-lo-w-l-y, she (or he!) will slowly back up.
But not yesterday.
When surprised motorists and pedestrians informed this driver that he (or she!) was headed the wrong way, they* kept right on going.
And backed right into a vacant parking spot.
I have no idea what happened later. Did the driver leave the same way it came?
Or just keep going to the Post Road?
*It’s now proper usage.
