This is obviously in slowmo

The camera has a very wide angle so on the video you can see the old top skip the light waay early. My attention was to the left of the intersection and I only saw the old top once I started crossing. You can see the bike's nose dip as I see him and hit the brakes.

Bly jy is ok na al daai gerol.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank amongst those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.

I'm glad you came away relatively unscathed Hanno.

They should charge that ou toppie with reckless & negligent driving and take his license away  :dousing:
