Nissan Micra driver reconceptualises traffic laws
(By which I mean, the driver decided to drive on the left but on the wrong side of a dual carriageway.) It’s easily done.
From Cornwall Live 14/02/17:
Shocking footage has captured the moment a Nissan Micra driver was caught on camera driving the wrong way down the busy A30 at rush hour.
[Bus Driver Jimmers] Thomas told Cornwall Live: "This little car bumbled past obliviously. I was very lucky to meet it by a layby where the road was wider, it's unbelievable that nobody was hurt."
He added that the car had a chance to pull in, but didn't seem interest in stopping.
[Wannabe highway cameraman] Jason Griffiths also posted this scary video with some strong language from this morning to Facebook [.]
But my favourite response was from Tweeter Adrian Edwards who commented:
"OMG just had a near death expeireance we were driving up the A30 and suddenly there was a purple micra coming down the wrong way in the fast lane we only just missed it as there was a van in front of us had ivy in the car too shit me up big time I'm shaking !!!!!"
And just to prove it, here’s a screenshot of the tweet.
Mr Edwards was left so ‘shit up’ (or should that be shat?), that his attention to punctuation deserted him. But that’s pretty much the norm for virtually all exchanges on social media these days. I think we were better off in the days of ‘textspeak’.
And what became the driver of the offending Micra, you ask.
Police said a 58-year-old woman from the St Merryn area, near Padstow, was taken into custody.
