A driver in Brooklyn who had enough of the traffic took to the sidewalks to save time – and almost hit a kid.
In the video below, taken by a security camera in front of a school, a car is seen edging its way forward on a sidewalk as the street seems to be completely backed up by buses. The car is forced to make a shortstop during his off road route, when a child walks right in front of his path. The child seems shocked by the appearance of the car but continues to walk towards the school building unharmed.
The car then moves forward and out of the cameras view, seemingly without causing any further damage.
One report came to the defense of the rule breaking driver, explaining that the car passenger was a woman who was in labor and needed to get to the hospital as soon as possible.
