This woman in Queensland, Australia came within inches of being struck by a car while at the marked pedestrian crossing.
Filmed by the dashcam of the nearby motorist, the video below shows a blue Toyota Corolla speeding through the crossing without even noticing the pedestrian, and failing to brake at all during the incident.
Just before her scrape with death, this woman can be seen thanking the driver of the red car as she begins to cross the road.
The astute driver of the red vehicle then beeps their horn once they see the blue vehicle approaching the crossing, giving the pedestrian enough warning to look up, stop in her tracks just as the vehicle drives by, saving her from injury or even death.
What a legend. Be proud my friend! And while some commentators on the YouTube video claim that the woman is partly at fault for crossing without looking, and in the eyes of Australian law, she had the right of way and the motorist should have stopped.
That’s why I always look in the direction of the traffic. It’s not because someone let you pass that everyone will.
