The car narrowly missed hitting a pedestrian.

In the video, the man and other pedestrians stare down the driver as they continue to cross the road.

One commenter said: "Strange that the driver did not seem to have the intention to stop even when the bus was clearly moving forward."

On Oct 30, a BMW was seen running a red light in a school zone, near Fairfield Methodist School (Primary) at Dover Road.
