A dashcam among the oncoming traffic caught the dramatic moment on film as a Ford KA steered clear of the Volkswagen Golf at the last minute

This is the moment an elderly man drove the wrong way up a busy dual carriageway.

His black Volkswagen Golf was captured on dashcam heading towards oncoming traffic on the A8 Glasgow Road near Edinburgh.

The driver of a black Ford KA has to take evasive action to avoid a head-on collision.

The video, posted by website Scotland’s Worst Drivers, shows the Volkswagen driver carrying on regardless, reports the Daily Record.

Michael Gray, the driver who caught last Monday’s incident on video, said: “It was an elderly gentleman and I believe he drove from the South Gyle direction.

“He didn’t make any attempt to stop after passing me and just continued towards the Maybury junction.”

A spokesman from Learn Driving Skills, a driving tuition company, said: “The driver could have caused a serious collision as the last thing you expect coming towards you on a dual carriageway is another vehicle.

“Although road marking may be hard to see, directional signs usually are clear and visible in good time.”

The video was posted online by Scotland’s Worst Drivers, a website aimed at “shaming bad driving north of the border”.
