I saw something amazing today, which was only not hugely tragic, by a narrow margin...
I was driving home down a main road (one with two lanes each way, a wide dirt and grass median strip in the middle, with a farm-type wire fence running down the length of it). I was in after-5, reasonably heavy traffic, in the 100km/hr strip, (only the cars were going about 80 km/hr...which turned out for the best...). Anyway, I was heading north and about to turn off to the right. Up ahead of me, (not more than 100m, I guess), I saw a car that was heading south suddenly charge west into the median strip. It sent up a huge plume of dirt, like a rally car, then proceeded to continue straight across between the northbound traffic and ended up facing south on the far side of the road-verge. It was like something out of a car-chase TV show...only it was real! I was stunned that the car got through the oncoming traffic without causing a major accident. I've never seen anything like it.
Why it happened, I don't know. The driver must've lost control, because no-one would normally do such a thing. People don't do U-turns straight through fences and into thick, oncoming, 80km/hr traffic!
And some people think I drive like a racing driver! This person was just about lining up for the Darwin Awards.
