Fortunately for the kid, the truck driver was alert and quickly stomped on the brakes. The boy was also lucky the truck was a Volvo FH Series equipped with an emergency braking system — just look at how the tractor bites the asphalt as it comes to a halt.

A good braking system often makes the difference between a safe drive and catastrophe. Fortunately, the video you’re about to watch is an example to follow as far as driver reaction and the quality of brakes go.

In the slow-motion replay at the end, you can see the Volvo FH got within a foot of them. Just look at how the tractor bites the asphalt as it comes to a halt. If you’re a parent, consider showing this to your children to press home the importance of stopping to look both ways when crossing the street.
