Man travels 30km wrong way on freeway

‘A motorist who has admitted being drunk and driving the wrong way down a Melbourne freeway says his actions were not dangerous. [..]

A car was first spotted going the wrong way about 2am (AEST) today on the West Gate Freeway near the West Gate Bridge, at Newport, in Melbourne’s south-west.

Mr Cartwright apologised to motorists on the freeway that night and admitted he was drunk.

“As I said, I was drunk … but I don’t think I actually put anyone in real danger. Even though I was driving on the wrong side of the road, I never came close to hitting anyone,” he told reporters.’
