This is the perfect definition of a "near miss"

I see this all the time driving in Downtown Bangor. People cross the street without looking up! The are either distracted by their phone and texting, or they have music cranked in their earbuds. It drives me insane.

A guy was almost run over by a motorcycle after he mindlessly jaywalked in Manchester, England.

Helmet camera video from Chris Evans, captures this fool crossing the street after the light turns green. He was just a split second from biting the big one.

Lesson to learn here? If you would like to live another day with your face buried in your phone, or jamming to your favorite tune, pay attention to your surroundings.
