Just a bit scary!

Postby Stradageek » 29 Nov 2020, 8:53am

So I'm taking the one way feed from Broughton to go south to Northampton and find a car coming straight at me!!!!! Looking at the layout below a driver was trying to avoid the minor inconvenience of going round the roundabout and back by driving nearly 100m on the wrong side of a road that is divided by a raised kerb then turning right into a blind one-way junction - going the wrong way.

Sadly, for the traveler community in general, he then drove into the adjacent travelers site. But it is a bit scary to think that you could meet a nutter like that at any time :(

nutters all the time on our roads, you just have to be vigilant all the time...
