Terrifying moment driver forces car through zebra crossing full of school kids

A dash cam has captured the unbelievable moment a motorist drives through a zebra crossing narrowly avoiding school children as they cross the street.

The video, taken in the Panyu District in Guangdong Province, China, shows a school teacher waiting for cars to stop before she enters the zebra crossing and stops in the middle to assess that it's safe for the students to begin crossing.

The group of primary school children line up to cross the street in pairs when a car turns toward them from another street.

The driver pauses before deciding to force his way through a gap in the children, narrowly avoiding them.

As the driver passes the group the teacher moves to grab one of the children and raises her hands in disbelief at the driver, before hitting his car with what appears to be a small umbrella as he drives off.

In an ironic moment, the driver of the car who almost caused havoc gets out of his car and walks over to the teacher and begins to "verbally abuse" her according to Guangzhou Panyu Police report obtained by Beijing News Express.

Police attended the scene on March 4 and spoke with the 32-year-old male driver of the car.

Beijing News Express reports he was found in breach of the Road Traffic Safety Law of the People's Republic of China and was fined 200 yuan (A$40) and three points for "behaviour of impolite pedestrians".

In accordance with the Public Security Punishment Law of the People's Republic of China, the man was also detained for five days for "picking and provoking trouble".

The shocking video comes one day after CCTV footage caught the moment a boy became trapped under a car after it struck him in the city of Kaili in China's Guizhou province.

The boy suffered only minor injuries after bystanders rushed to lift the car off of him.
