Even harder to get across three lanes of traffic coming towards you. Understandable if it was quiet but the road was busy.especially as to how hard it must have been to get onto a slip road the wrong way with a caravan on the back as well.
Agree, looked like they were doing "normal" speed.They could have pulled onto wide grassed area by central barrier and waited for Police but plainly must not have noticed traffic travelling at a closing speed of approx 140mph.
That is SCARY
As said dementia, plus passenger asleep?
Picture makes that turn look like it could be an easy mistake, but you would be driving in the left hand land, crossing chevrons and going through a no entry sign.
It would certainly be an even easier mistake if driving on wrong side of A329. Like you picture makes it look easy enough even if in correct lane. Can't help feeling that for too long road design is carried out by desk bound part time drivers.Picture makes that turn look like it could be an easy mistake, but you would be driving in the left hand land, crossing chevrons and going through a no entry sign.
I'm sure you are absolutely right. If as reported the driver was in their 80s it's possibly no surprise. Perhaps another good case for 'retests at 75 or similar although how that would be implemented with foreign drivers goodness knows .He/she must have been oblivious to all surrounding signs and vehicles. Almost unconscious.
