A New Bedford resident’s dash-cam captured a car driving on the wrong side of the highway, stop, and complete a three point turn in front of oncoming traffic. They sent the dash-cam footage in to New Bedford Guide with the following caption,
“On Rt.140 this morning someone decided it would be a good idea to drive on the wrong side of the highway. They realized it and did a three-point turn to go back in the right direction. Luckily, my daughter had a dash cam to capture this stupidity.” The video was sent in by Paul DeSousa.
Wrong way drivers cause between 300-400 deaths per year in America. Just a few months ago, on Christmas night, a wrong way driver killed a family of three in Somerset, Massachusetts. A stark reminder that although nobody was hurt in the following video, this could of been a devastating situation.
