This is the moment a white van hurtles up the wrong way of a busy motorway as other motorists swerve to avoid it.
The incident was filmed on the Banja Luka-Gradiska motorway in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the footage was later widely shared on social media.
In the video, a white van belonging to a local furniture company is seen driving along the wrong side of a motorway.
Fortunately, other motorists managed to spot the bungling van driver and take evasive action as there were no reported incidents, according to local media.
Reports said that a similar incident took place on the same motorway two days before.
The signposts leading to the motorway are unclear and often confuse drivers, sometimes sending them up the wrong side of the road, according to reports.
Drivers unfamiliar with the area often ignore the signs and continue straight on the village road instead of making a left turn which leads them onto the opposite side of the motorway.
Netizen ‘Limunibus’ said: “I have a phobia of idiots like this. I’d rather run on some roads than be among kamikaze drivers.”
‘Marijan81577852’ commented: “Dear mum, if we aren’t killed by our government, a crazy driver will probably get us on the roads!”
‘Twitashmoj’ wrote: “I don’t know about you, but I could glad beat the cr*p out of these kinds of drivers.”
