Raleigh, NC: Wrong-way driver signals when entering a gas station against traffic

It's bad enough that they're going in the wrong direction, but at least he gave a signal, right?

Presumably Tar Heel and Redditor /u/CrazyBull07 posted the head-shaking dashcam moment on the /r/IdiotsInCars subreddit, which shows a driver driving the wrong way down a one-way street in Raleigh but having the presence of mind to signal his intentions. doesn't matter.

Check out the crazy and hilarious moment below.

[OC] Trucks going the wrong way still have the courtesy to use their turn signal

The incident occurred in the 5600 block of Western Boulevard at a Mobil gas station (Exact location on Google Maps linked here.)

As OP's video shows, he's driving due east on Western Blvd, a one-way street, toward the intersection with Jones Franklin Rd.

And as this bird's-eye view of the upcoming roadshow shows, I can imagine inattentive drivers thinking they can still turn left onto Western Blvd Signage saying “Do Not Do.”

The driver of a black truck can be seen trying to squeeze into the Mobil gas station in the wrong direction.

Funnily enough, they're signaling, so as the OP title says, they're wrong, but they're doing it politely.

“I love that this happened in the best part of the song,” /u/Rhythm_Morgan commented.

“When someone does something like that, my schedule magically clears up and I have all the time I need to stab myself in front of idiots like that until they f**k off,” said /u/appa-ate- mummy

“Or you could just have them turned off so you two aren't blocking the path for everyone else,” /u/onlysoccers**posts replied.

Driving in NC is wrong classified as a violation, punishable with a fine of up to $500.

Although it is against the law and not conducive to safe driving, people make mistakes and as defensive drivers we actively look far enough ahead to avoid these types of drivers and their mental errors.

For this reason, it's important to always keep your head up to date, even on routes you know like the back of your hand.
