A MUM has thanked a mysterious ‘car angel’ who left a message on her windshield – and said the text could have saved her from a fatal crash .
Dawn Ashford-Williams, of Wrexham in Wales, was back in her Peugeot 107 after dinner at Pizza Hut with her sister-in-law when she spotted the message.
The teaching assistant opened the handwritten letter to discover a stranger had urged her to check the air pressure in one of her tyres.
Dawn, 37 years old, says North Wales Live: “I looked at it right away.
“It wasn’t completely flat but it was flat enough to think I might have a puncture, so I drove straight to a garage to pump more air into the tyres.”
When Dawn had checked the tires a few days earlier, she suspected her car might have had a slow puncture on the way to the restaurant.
She told of her relief that someone had entered prevent possible serious accidents.
“Honestly, I don’t check the tires all the time and I might not have noticed the problem for a few days,” she said.
“Who knows, I might have hit a big hit on my way home, or been stuck in the middle of nowhere with the kids in the back.
“Whoever they were, they could have saved me from a serious accident or something.”
At the time, Dawn was preparing to go home to her son Kian, nine, and grandson Connor, eight.
Wanting to thank her good Samaritan, she turned to Facebook.
“There are a lot of good people out there,” she said. I’ve seen Facebook posts where people find wallets and cell phones, but never have wallets and cell phones.
“So I just thought I would write something, say thank you, if there was a chance they would see my message.
I could have had a big loss or been left with the kids in the back
“I just wanted to show positivity towards a change.”
Responding to her post, another driver said a similar thing happened to her last summer at a farm shop in Holt, near Wrexham.
The poster said: ‘We were like a snail driving back to Wrexham, then going straight to get it fixed.
“Good job, there are some good people out there.”
Drivers with poor tyres could be fined £2,500.
And during the winter months you should go for a minimum spike depth of 3mm.
Tires also need to be properly inflated, or you could slip or be unable to stop on wet or icy roads.
