SOME FOLK SHOULDN’T BE PARENTS: Dash cam footage showed how a mother (right) ignored basic pedestrian safety which resulted in a car colliding into her children (inset). Fortunately no one was hurt. Image: YouTube

When crossing the street, “look left, right and left again” - Simple rules taught to children for decades yet some adults willing choose to ignore.

A video shows how ignoring basic pedestrian safety, not to mention showing poor parenting, can lead to a horror situation – a vehicle colliding into your family.


Shocking dash cam footage shows a woman in Russia walking her two children into the path of an oncoming vehicle. The vehicle rams into both children (a girl and a young boy) while the mother avoids being hit.

Fortunately both kids are seen getting up from the road seconds after the crash without any apparent injuries.

Watch the video!
