Boat trailer driver completely on the wrong side of the road

A driver towing a boat on the wrong side of the road was just one of several motorists caught crossing the center line of a motorway in Canterbury recently.

Sergeant John Hamilton said police issued six violations in just over an hour for drivers crossing the center line of State Highway 1 over the Hundalee Range.

Among them was the driver of the boat, who was seen “with all four wheels of his vehicle on the opposite side of the road, as they turned a corner.”

Sergeant Hamilton said it was “incredibly frustrating” that so many drivers were being caught risking their own lives and those of other drivers.

“This is how head-on collisions occur, especially at or near corners, where drivers have less time to react.”

He said police would continue to pursue that type of behavior.
