I was out for a walk today, and had an interesting moment. For the first time in months, I had what was possibly a paranormal experience.
I was walking on Power's Road in the Goulds (my hometown), and there was a car parked at roadside. Keep in mind, Power's Road is a backroad composed of gravel, and is mostly used for transportation of farming supplies and other resources.
However, there are hundreds of dirt roads that branch off from the main stretch. We spent quite the amount of time in there back in high school.
I took this "selfie" following the experience.
While I was leaving the park, I turned onto Power's Road. I knew there was a car parked at roadside, and kept looking behind me for potential traffic. Shortly after I started walking, I noticed a black car in my peripheral vision. I turned my head, and the black car was right next to me so I moved out of the way. When I looked again, there was nothing there. No car in sight. With nowhere for the car to turn off, and not enough time to turn around and drive the other way, I was reminded of a story my friend's mother told me.
"Voici la route".
In order to protect her identity, of course I won't be doing any name-dropping.
When I was in high school (before I ever did a folklore minor at university), my friend's mom told me of her personal ghost stories from growing up. We grew up in a small community, so most people knew each other, and knew the community inside and out.

In terms of what my friend's mom told me, she claims a ghost car has been following her for decades. According to her, there have been times she's been driving around town and an "old black car" would appear, and continue to follow her.
After some time, the car would disappear- but there's a twist. My friend's mom claims there would be no exit for the car to take, so it's very much impossible for the car to disappear the way it does.
Can this be explained by a driver's vision being obstructed by light or darkness? Also, what did I see today?
