Dashcam footage catches lorry driver on wrong side of road crossing bridge

This story is over

The UK is quite unusual in the fact that motorists drive on the left hand side of the road. Perhaps this lorry driver temporarily thought he was in continental Europe after he was caught driving on the wrong side of the road while crossing a road bridge – thankfully avoiding causing a collision.

The incident happened on July 13 on the B1173 London Road over the River Welland, with the driver inexplicably on the right hand side of the road throughout the 17-second clip.

The lorry driver then turned right onto Cowbit Road, heading in the direction of Crowland.

Luckily, there were no other vehicles coming in the opposite direction.

The video was posted on the Idiot Drivers in Lincolnshire and the UK Facebook page.
