Video: If you miss your freeway exit, don’t be like this driver, Ohio DOT warns

National News

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW) — The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) is once again advising drivers to not make poor choices while out on roadways.

The department recently released footage of a driver who, after presumably missing an exit on I-270, which encircles Columbus, chose to go to the shoulder, pull the car into reverse and drive back far enough to get off at that exit.

At one point, the driver was slowly going backward in the far right lane with cars speeding around.

“If you miss your exit, don’t worry … there are more ahead where you can safely loop back around,” ODOT reminded drivers in a Facebook post.

The incident was caught on camera Sunday. Watch the video at the top of the story.
