Two British tourists filmed a car driving into oncoming traffic on the wrong side of a motorway on the Balearic island.


The two men, whose lively commentary can be heard throughout the short clip, started filming while they were slowed in traffic on the ring road around Palma after noticing a black car on the opposite side of the road trying to avoid cars coming towards it.

"I can’t fucking believe it, he is coming back out. He’s going to try and spin round," a man with an accent from the northeast of England can be heard saying.

"No way."

Another male voice pipes up with a "what a fucking nutter, he is coming straight up the wrong way".

"What are you doing? You must be pissed?"

The vehicle is then seen pulling out into the middle of cars speeding towards it.

"He’s going, he’s going he’s going. What the fuck is he doing," one of the men says.

"Nooo nooo nooo," is heard and then “holy shit!” as another car swerves to avoid it.

The men seem amazed to finally discover that the driver was a woman.

As they passed the car one of them said: "It’s a wo…what the hell was she doing. What was she thinking there?"

The incident was filmed on Tuesday afternoon on the MA-20, the motorway that circles the island’s capital Palma. The car appears to be in an area close to the stadium where the speed limit is 120km per hour.

The video was forwarded to Spain's national police Twitter account.
