Talk about taking jaywalking to the next near-fatal level.

Crossed five lanes

The video showed the man making his way to the right-most lane, after possibly having crossed two slip road lanes and three expressway lanes.

From the video, it could be seen that one car in the centre lane of the expressway had to brake to avoid hitting the jaywalker.

By the time the jaywalker got to the right-most lane, he was in the way of the car recording the scene, which had to swerve left to avoid him.

The jaywalker even appeared to have momentarily froze in front of the vehicle, as if he was too stunned to react.

In Sept. 2017, a man trying to cross the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) on foot was hit by a car and taken to hospital.
