Take the rest of the day off and head to the pub.

Knowing that he almost died, he nods and thinks to himself, "I have a good life."

Always a good idea to look both ways before crossing the street, you never know when some idiot might be trying to kill you.

Whenever I'm at a stoplight, I always take a moment to look at the driver in my rearview, to my right, my left, and straight ahead. Without fail at least one of them will be looking down in their lap. Usually, two. It's fucking insane how many people simply cannot resist looking at their phones while driving. Just as frustrating how many of those people refuse to invest $12 in a phone dash mount, so they can at least *partially* keep their eyes on the road. So yeah, I don't use crosswalks like I used to any more. Now I step into them like I'm Neo and every moving object is Agent Smith. Seriously people, always make eye contact with drivers before you step in front of their cars. Many of them are just not looking at you. Stay safe.

That nod was like he was saying "Yup, just cheated death again. Off to work."

This almost happened to me yesterday. Except I looked bothways before I went to cross the road because I trust no one. The woman looked up off her phone and then slammed on the brakes and ended up in the middle of the intersection looking like a real jackass.

This is a mixture of precison driving and lunacy. I am both disgusted and impressed.

"See... that's the kind of day I'm having." Proceeds to nod the rest the way to work.

Something like this happened to me and my gf, except we couldn't even see the car because a bus was in the way. We were walking in front of the bus and someone speeds past the opposite side just a few feet in front of us about as fast as the car in the gif. Crazy how if we had started walking a few seconds earlier, one or both of us might have been killed, but instead we go home like any other night.
16 Apr 2018 19:47 - +7
Wow...
16 Apr 2018 21:39 - +5
Someone almost got me like that except I saw them and threw what I had in my hand (just a quarter), they stopped to tell at me. I should've called the cops, but cell phones weren't as prevalent at the time.

Worst part is you can't do anything about this as the pedestrian besides stand there in shock

This is the one situation where I think the whole system in China is good, I think it should be implemented in the us but to use license plates. Like when a camera sees a hit and run it notifies the authorities of the plate number.

I have had similar happen to me a couple of times in central London. The fast cars that almost killed me were in the second lane though. The car closest to my side of the road had stopped and I was just about to step into the second lane when a car went straight past at high speed. There is also a twat that lives near me who has almost killed me a few times at the crossing at the end of my road. When I am halfway across the empty crossing he just floors it out of a nearby side road and drives through the lane I am just about to step on.

Love how he looks at the camera like "OMG DID ANYBODY SEE THAT"

1 inch and i would've seen that in another subreddit.

It is 100% the driver’s fault. But who walks out into the street not looking?

Lol I can only assume that was more like "Ok well I'll check to make sure the other car isn't moving too"

Such a thin line between living and ending up on wpd...

That is why I always look both ways, no matter what. You don't trust drivers on the road enough to not wear a seatbelt, so why would you cross the street without looking.

Damn...you have to respect that recovery time. I mean, I think I'd shake it off and make it across before the light changed, but the man didn't even stop for a breath!

This is why I don't want to sell my car and bike everywhere. I'd have to ride on the side of the roadways with these psychopaths.

Even the fact that in some countries the drivers always using a dashcam is kinda sad. These driving maniacs get their drivers license from cornflakes packages.

My butthole clenched so hard I inverted my sphincter muscle.

I similar thing happened to my son as he ran out a little a head of me when we crossed the road once. I’m glad he did not get hit and also sad than in an alternate dimension he got all splatted and ended up on r/watchpeopledie. The good news is that he looks before crossing now even if we do have a green man.

he looking like neo from the matrix lol
