This happened a few years ago right outside in my town. Driver in her late 90s got lost in her own home town in the middle of the day with light traffic volume, and drove south head on into a car in the northbound lanes on the interstate.

Glad you're OK, I had an accident on the strip 2 weeks ago when a tourist made an illegal u turn in front of me and I t-boned their rental car.

Drivers in this town are horrible...

I'm telling ya, there a bunch on non driving mofos out here. Have heard about it for years out here. First time I ran in to it personally. That's a helluva situation. There's no where to go and nothing you can do. I don't care what the crash test rating in on my car, your not gonna make it out of that.

Worked with a nice girl from publix that sad to say, drank to much, drove on the wrong side of the freeway and into a bus. Miss her a lot.

I remember I saw a driver do that. I was actually driving with him except I was in my car and I was driving on the correct side. He got pulled over a few miles down the road with no accident. Thank god. Glad your ok. It was not yet your time!

My idea is to put the spikes like they have at parking garages on all off ramp exits. I mean who the backs up those ramps?... Nobody! I think that would solve a ton of problems.
