Recently, we received a dash cam footage from one of our customers, Zabed, whose BlackVue dash cam captured an unusual yet bone-chilling near miss.
Danger in residential area
In the video we see Zabed as he drives through a residential area on his way to pick up his son from soccer practice. Suddenly, a small child riding on a toy car comes speeding from the sidewalk right onto the street. He gets stopped by (possibly) his big sister just as Zabed manages to stop his car.
Zabed honked at the kids to get to the safety of the sidewalk and the little girl scrambled to haul her brother and his toy car back. Finally, their mother came running from the house to collect them. Thankfully, this time a tragedy was averted, but it certainly was a heart-stopping moment for everyone involved.
Thanks to the BlackVue dash cam’s full HD recording, the details of the incident were crystal clear, capturing the child’s risky adventure and Zabed’s rapid response. The footage showcased not only the importance of attentive driving but also the crucial role that responsible parenting and supervision play in keeping the streets safe for everyone.
