THIS is the terrifying moment a sports car raced through a red light, narrowly missing a child on a bike.
في الفيديو, 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 across – and luckily spots the car speeding towards him.
The quick-thinking boy breaks suddenly – stopping 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 Police – and his licence endorsed with six points.
لكن, many on وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي thought the consequences should have been greater.
