One unfortunate Nottinghamshire driver was caught out recently after being boxed in by a HGV, proceeding to complete a ‘1,600’ point turn.
A turn in the road, as the three-point turn is now called, is oft not the easiest of manoeuvres, but it is difficult to imagine such an undertaking needing this many attempts.
Onlookers couldn’t believe it when they saw this driver taking endless attempts to get out of a tricky situation in Radford.
The driver – who the commentators on the video said was a woman – appears to have driven down Kyme Street, before being blocked in by a lorry at the T-junction with Grant Street.
But as she attempts to turn around, she gets stuck in a series of seemingly never-ending tiny turns.
Watch the video
People taking the video on 5 April made comments such as, “What is she doing?” and “This is the best ever”, as the driver tried to extricate herself.
One even said she was “doing about a 1,600-point turn”.
While it’s probably not quite as bad as that, the video posted on social media lasts for over three minutes, and the situation had apparently been going on for a few minutes before that.
The driver eventually extricates herself from the situation when the lorry moves and she’s able to get through.
