This man drove on the wrong side of a B.C. highway, near Kamloops (VIDEO)

Kamloops Matters


There’s one local driver, however, who takes the cake.

In a video posted to Facebook on Thursday (Feb. 7), a man can be seen driving his vehicle on the wrong side of the road, on Highway 1 near the Lafarge turnoff. Amanda Brennan caught all the action on camera (KamloopsMatters does not endorse being on your phone while driving).

At one point, a semi goes by.

“He kept going, probably another two or three kilometres,” Brennan tells KamloopsMatters. “He went to the next merge exit and finally took the exit.”

Brennan says, at first, she thought the driver was a foreigner.

“I thought, maybe he doesn’t know he’s on the wrong side of the road.”

Kamloops Mounties say the detachment hasn’t received a report about the incident.

“However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t stopped and given a violation ticket if he was seen by an officer,” says Cpl. Jodi Shelkie.
