- Concrete median strip suggests car may have been driving illegaly for awhile
A Sydney driver has been spotted driving down a busy road in the wrong direction the double demerit Queen’s Birthday long weekend.
It’s unclear how long the green Toyota hatchback had been on the wrong side of the road, but the concrete median strip stretching into the background suggests it had been driving illegally for some time.
A Sydney driver was photographed making a major road error during Australia’s double demerit Queen’s Birthday long weekend in Macquarie Park
The picture was posted to the Humans of Eastwood Facebook page on Saturday night – an account that pokes fun at locals.
A dark VW four-wheel-drive turns left onto the main road outside the Macquarie shopping centre, having to stick to the left lane to avoid the Toyota.
A black Honda station wagon can also be seen at the traffic lights waiting to turn left across the illegally positioned hatchback, stopped adjacent to the concrete median strip.

The post attracted hundreds of comments, with some wondering whether the driver may have been from the USA.
‘How the hell did they end up on that side of the road?’ another asked, noting the median strip that stretches well into the distance behind the vehicle.
One woman extended the driver empathy, saying the exit to the shopping centre’s carpark was tricky.
‘I’ve actually have had some confusing moments in and out of the car park at that spot to be honest but not quite like that but I remember entering the out from the lights because it was hard to tell which one was right,’ she said.
