The dashcam footage shows a male pedestrian using a mobility aid to make his way across the zebra crossing.

The person who shared the dashcam footage stops their car to allow the man to cross the road but it’s at this moment a taxi can be seen crossing over to the opposite lane to overtake the queue of traffic.

The taxi is inches away from colliding with the pedestrian as it is driven through the crossing.
