The woman shown in this shocking, 43-second video did not die. Watch it and you’ll be amazed she didn’t. Because of way too much motorised traffic on this road in Birmingham, pedestrians are seen having to weave in and out of slow-moving cars. Except one wasn’t slow-moving, one was being driven murderously fast…
The woman seen at the top of the video survived the incident with a minor head injury. The smash happened on Saturday October 20th on Alum Rock Road, Birmingham.
Rather amazingly nobody has yet been charged over the incident. Police said: “Drivers were spoken at the scene but nobody has been arrested.”
In a civilised society, people should not have to take their life into their hands to cross a road. This wasn’t a ring road or a dual carriageway, this was a high street, a high street bustling with people.
Enough is enough. Cities must be designed for people, not cars.
