Audi driver zooms past pedestrian and beats red light at Lentor Avenue

An Audi driver was caught on camera beating the red light and narrowly avoiding an accident with a pedestrian.

Facebook page Beh Chia Lor - Singapore Road uploaded a video of the incident that occurred along Lentor Avenue on December 30.

It said in the caption: "Audi driver zooms through red light, coming within inches of hitting (a) pedestrian. If the woman had started crossing just a few seconds earlier or walked just a bit faster, this could have turned into a terrible accident."

In the video, the woman can be seen looking downwards at her phone while crossing the road. She stops right in her tracks just as the red car whizzes past her. She then resumes crossing the road while looking left and right for traffic.

Netizens have slammed the driver's behaviour while also advising all pedestrians to pay attention when crossing the road instead of having their eyes "glued" to their phones.
