Default Here's the school boy just seconds away from getting hit With the heavy transport

Here's the school boy just seconds away from getting hit
With only a few centimeters, the heavy transport driver is capable of avoiding a serious accident.

Parents should show this video to their children saw them could see how fast it is almost being crushed under a truck

I can't believe the lorry stopped in time. If that had been my landrover and trailer there is no way I could have stopped in that distance. Crossing behind the bus wasn't the cleverest thing I've seen.

spectacular piece of driving .... and some serious tech in the truck to stop in that distance I doubt your average car could have matched that
VERY lucky kid

That is one lucky kid, amazing stopping power! Credit to the driver, he wonít forget that in a hurry.

If the kid hadnít run away a little then it could have been a really different video.

I also wonder how much the driver had anticipated such a thing happening, heíd of seen the bus parked there and the kids getting off of it. You can see that he hadnít hit the brakes until he saw the kid, but I wouldnít mind betting that he came off the gas a long way before the bus, and was most likely covering the brake. Scrubbing a few mph off before he hit the brakes could have saved the kids life.
Thatís the difference between being on the ball, or being switched off and being oblivious to your surroundings......

spot on - I remember watching an advanced driving video years ago about anticipating potential danger etc , it made me think differently about the way I drive and has stuck with me since, saved my skin 2 or 3 times over 30 years of motorbikes, as you say he was surely off the gas and foot over the brake just in case and it likely made the difference..... even so impressive stopping power, wonder if he was empty ?

Ha ..... some interesting translation if you read down.
