In die video, captured on a dash cam, a car can be seen approaching a set of traffic lights as they change from green, to orange, to red.

Two young cyclists then start to make their way across the road when suddenly a silver convertible can be seen zooming along in the righthand lane.

One of the youngsters has already crossed the road, but the second is only halfway acrossand luckily spots the car speeding towards him.

The quick-thinking boy breaks suddenlystopping just inches from the car’s path.

The convertible’s break lights flash for less than a second as it zooms right past the boy, then slides around a righthand corner into another road.

The Swindon Police said Jody New, 45, was driving the car, and had pleaded guilty to careless driving.

The cops said New was handed a fine of £307, £34 victim surcharge, £110 costs to Wiltshire Policeand his licence endorsed with six points.

Maar, many on sosiale media thought the consequences should have been greater.

To which someone mirrored: “Fined!!! That’s dangerous bloody driving . Glad no one was hurt.

Nog een het bygevoeg: “He didn’t narrowly miss the child, the child was so switched on that he saved his own life! Absolutely pathetic punishment.

And another user said: “Should be locked up! Thank god that kid was aware of his surroundings….

Een persoon het kommentaar gelewer: “Careless driving? Attempted murder more like. Should be locked up.

To which someone else said: “Slap on the wrist and a fine . Joke!!!”

The video has come to light not long after another dash cam caught an extremely close call.
