A video taken by Stomper Sam shows just how dangerous it is for kids if they are not made aware of the importance of safe cycling. 

Sam was driving along Chin Swee Road yesterday (Jun 19) when he had to slam on his brakes to avoid knocking down a boy riding an ofo bicycle.

The boy, who was riding with his companion, had dashed across a pedestrian crossing just as the light turned green in favour of motorists, nearly getting hit by Sam's car.

The other boy stopped just in time after his friend zoomed across the pedestrian crossing. 

"Very dangerous with these cyclists riding across green light without looking out for oncoming traffic," said Sam.

"Luckily, I was careful and slow."

So parents, please take some time to educate your kids on how to cycle safely, especially when they are out there on their own.
