The camera in Mr. Andrzej’s car registered a dangerous overtaking on a pedestrian crossing. The situation happened on Friday in Warsaw’s Bemowo, we received the film on Kontakt 24. – It could have ended tragically. I sent the recording as a warning – explained the reader.
As described by Mr. Andrzej, the incident took place on Friday morning at 6.54. – I was driving along Radio Street. The Uber driver, traveling in a blue Skoda Fabia, was overtaking on a pedestrian crossing when a pedestrian was entering the crossing. It was just past the roundabout on Boernerowo. I’ve seen situations like this before, but this time the scale changed. If this person had entered the crossing two seconds earlier or walked faster, it could have ended tragically – he reported in an interview with the editors of Kontakt 24.
In the video he uploaded, a delivery truck is seen stopping in front of the lanes. The taxi behind him abruptly changes lanes, crossing a double solid line, and overtakes the bus. The camera in our reader’s car registered that at the same second a pedestrian enters the zebra.
Mr. Andrzej added that he often observes similar situations in the area. He said more police patrols would be useful there. – During the week, between 6.50 and 7.10 on this street is dangerous. Sometimes the police stay there to watch the traffic, but usually on Saturday and in the morning – he noted. – I sent the recording as a warning. Maybe someone will see them and think that it is worth thinking on the road and anticipating what may happen – he concluded.
