One would think that knowing which side of the road to drive on is common knowledge among motorists. But in some parts of the world, this isn’t the case, apparently.

Whether due to a brain fart or a wanton disregard for fellow road users’ safety, motorists in Hungary are routinely caught driving against traffic on the wrong side of the expressway.

The problem has become so common that the Hungarian Road Services decided to put together highlight reels made up of such incidents to remind everyone to be more mindful. Clips uploaded to social media show drivers backing up and driving against traffic on expressways, and even making U-turns.

“Over the past few weeks, we have seen numerous instances of motorists making illegal U-turns, reversing, or driving against traffic on the highways. This was done by so many people and in such a way that we managed to put together a selection. Unfortunately,” an Instagram post by the agency reads.

“Actually, we’ve already told you so many times why people shouldn’t do this, why such a reckless maneuver is dangerous, that we’d rather give the floor to Mr. Mackey from South Park to see if his request goes over better,” it added.

Yes, it’s easy to laugh at these clips—but keep in mind this is a very serious problem. Have you ever come across someone doing this on Philippine expressways?
