This footage was captured by stunned Amanda Lodite on her dashcam as she followed a vehicle on Adswood Road in Cheadle on Sunday afternoon.
Both cars had been stopped at the lights for a few minutes waiting to turn right but when they changed to green the driver in front turned into oncoming traffic on the wrong side of the island.
She posted the video on Facebook with some suggesting the driver may have been confused by the road layout, but others argued the claims saying if people can’t understand basic road signage then they shouldn’t be on the road.
Amanda believes the driver was male and said that he would’ve had plenty of time at the lights to observe where he was going if he wasn’t familiar with the junction.
“I was behind him for quite a while and then he stopped in front of me at the lights to turn right the same way I was going.
“The lights changed and he went down towards the oncoming traffic on the wrong side of the island.
“There was plenty of time whilst the lights were on red for the driver to observe where he was going if he wasn’t familiar with the junction.
“He then crossed from the wrong side of the road around the island to end up in front of me again as I slowed down for him to do so as I wasn’t sure what he was doing.
“As I drove past, myself and the lady who he was heading towards while on the wrong side of the road looked at each other in disbelief.”
