The gut-wrenching moment a dashcam captures a pedestrian playing chicken on a busy Northern Territory highway.
The footage shared to YouTube shows the alarming moment the man appears in the middle of Stuart Highway as high-speed cars pass centimeters away in both directions. The dashcam video begins with the man standing up from lying in the middle of the road as vehicles swerve furiously to avoid hitting the man.
The male takes his time to bend over and pick up the thing he has dropped in the middle of the road, as cars keep passing by. The footage then shows him stumbling off towards a bus, oblivious to the danger he is in.
