Elderly man slowly crosses busy road – Drivers are in disbelief when cop makes split-second decision

June 23, 2018 Other

What would you do if you saw an elderly gentleman stuck in a crosswalk? While some people might wait patiently for him to cross, many others wouldn’t be so kind. One cop knew this reality, and when he saw the crosswalk change from green to red he knew he needed to act fast. What drivers witnessed next took them by complete surprise, and when you see the incredible dash-cam footage you will quickly understand why.

As cameras rolled in the busy seven lane intersection, an elderly gentleman clutching two canes is seen slowly moseying across the street. Not even halfway through, the light suddenly changes and cars begin to take off. The three drivers in the middle lanes don’t budge an inch, patiently allowing the gentleman to finish crossing at his own pace.

A traffic cop standing nearby took notice of the potentially dangerous situation, and made a split-second decision that left bystanders watching in disbelief. He is seen approaching the man as they exchange a couple quick sentences in the middle of the road. What the officer does next leaves the drivers utterly speechless, as cameras captured a scene they would not soon forget. See the incredible turn of events in the video below – this gave me chills to watch!
