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.”

No, that is not a horse and cart you’re watching – but a man and cart.
This is the bizarre moment that a man is captured on camera running along a road while carrying a cart.
Dashcam footage shows the unidentified hi-vis jacketed man jogging down a road in Whitworth while a female passenger relaxes in the back.
On the clip a car can be seen patiently waiting behind the cart as it makes its journey down the street on Sunday, January 23.
It was taken by driving instructor Lee Jowett, who says he couldn’t believe what he saw.
Lee, whose company I-can Driving Solutions has instructors teaching around North Manchester and Bury, said:
“I had a student in at the time and as we were coming up the road we saw the cart ahead.
"At first I thought it was a horse, but then as we neared I realised it was a man. He was going at some rate – he must have been doing 15mph which isn’t too slow.
“I had to do a double take, and then as we passed I saw there was a woman relaxing on the back of the cart. At that point I didn’t know what to think.
“I passed the man and noticed there was a car that was slowly driving behind. I looked at the driver and as I did he just pulled his hands up as if saying ‘what can I do’.
“It’s weird how often I see weird things happen. It all happens on the roads.
“But this has to go down as one of the most bizarre things that I have seen.”

Its being reported a senior engineer has won the right to appeal against the construction of a controversial rail link in Salford. The Ordsall Chord, as it's called, will mean a new connection between Piccadilly and Victoria stations in Manchester. The new track length will be 1km and will involve the construction of a new viaduct and open up connections east and west across cities in the north - the so called 'Northern Powerhouse'.
Critics of the scheme say the planned route will cut through an area that's important to Greater Manchester's rail heritage and lead to the loss of a number of listed buildings. Now after a legal challenge, Mark Elliot, the former president of the Institute of Civil Engineers has been given leave to appeal.
