Потом электрическая карета профессора Челленджера тронулась с места под весёлые крики озорников и стоны пострадавших, и я зашагал дальше по Риджент-стрит, поглощённый мыслями о Глэдис и о том, что ждало меня впереди.

Ahead, another car was leaving the curb, and Babbitt slowed up, holding out his hand to the cars pressing on him from behind, agitatedly motioning an old woman to go ahead, avoiding a truck which bore down on him from one side.
Но впереди какая-то машина отъехала от тротуара, и Бэббит затормозил, сделал предостерегающий знак рукой машинам, наседавшим сзади, махнул старухе, чтобы та посторонилась, увернулся от грузовика, наезжавшего сбоку.
