So, it is no secret children sometimes do irresponsible things- they are just children after all and they need to make mistakes to learn.
But, a few kids in the Western Cape took it to a whole new level when they decided to play a game of chicken with moving trucks.
Briefly.co.za saw a video on social media, which showed school kids, still in uniform, running towards trucks on a busy road, then dodging them seconds before a collision.
The other kids who witnessed the daring game can clearly be heard laughing as their fellow pupils tease death.
According to Jacaranda FM, the incident allegedly took place on the N1 in De Doorns‚ Western Cape last month.
The video was posted on YouTube on 4 June, and within only a day it received almost 18 000 views.
One social media users believed the person that was filming the video sounded like a grown up and he should have stopped the children from playing the dangerous game.
"Sounds like a adult speaking....he should be but in jail letting those children do that ...l only feel bad for the drivers", Misty Cunningham wrote.
However, the identities of the school kids and the person who filmed it is still unknown.
