The bus driver who hit the man immediately stopped the bus and went out to help him.
Meanwhile, CCTV showed that the other driver seemed imperturbable, even after he almost hit the old woman.
He also showed the driver momentarily looking down to get something out of his pocket seconds before he almost hit the woman.
Pedestrian deaths are a growing concern in the busy streets of Sydney.
More than 1,500 pedestrians are beaten on the roads of New South Wales every year, according to NSW Road Safety Transport.
In its approach to road safety "Towards zero", NSW Road Safety Transport reminds drivers and pedestrians that road safety is a "shared responsibility", which means that both parties should always be cautious and vigilant along the way.

NSW Road Safety Transport also has its "Look Out Before You Out Out Out" campaign that also reminds pedestrians to take extra precautions when crossing roads, especially on high risk urban roads such as Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong.
The campaign reminds pedestrians to always look both ways before crossing and to check "where is your head".
Improvements to pedestrian safety infrastructures are also being added to protect pedestrians, such as pedestrian countdown timers and ground-light tests as additional warnings.
NSW Road Safety statistics show that pedestrian injuries and deaths have affected almost all ages, from 17 to 60, but most pedestrians are men.
