Watch as mother coaxes toddler onto crossing while lights on green

This is the moment that the mother of a toddler attempts to get her toddler to cross a busy road while the traffic lights were on green.

The mother is seen crossing the road, seemingly unaware that her child is not by her side. When she has nearly crossed, she turns around to realise that the child is still, in fact, on the other side of the road.

The mother then stands in the middle of the busy road, attempting to coax the child across the road. The lights then turn to green as she continues to call the child across the road.

Luckily, the drivers waiting at the crossing notice the situation and remain stationary.

The video was recorded by 23-year-old Kevin Smith on his dash cam in Kettering, Northamptonshire.

Mr Smith, a transport operator, told the Daily Mail: “‘I was completely shocked, I couldn’t believe that a parent would be so unaware of where their child was. ‘The lights must have been green for at least 30 seconds before she realised. A car behind me beeped and then she looked, and that’s when she realised she should get off the road.”
