Over the past couple of years, but especially in 2022, the number of traffic accidents seems to be increasing.
Apart from people’s carelessness or lack of attention while driving, drunk driving and breaking the highway code are also common causes of traffic accidents.
Quite recently, a truck driver caused a serious accident when he tried to correct his mistake of missing the exit on a Hungarian highway.
Dumbfoundingly, instead of proceeding to the next exit, the truck driver decided to stop in the middle of the M4 highway and put his truck in reverse to try to reach the exit he had missed, Origo writes.
Hungarian Public Roads published a video about the incident on their Instagram page. One of their surveillance cameras recorded the accident near Abony.

As you can see in the video, a truck from the oncoming traffic failed to notice the other truck, violating the highway code and reversing, so they collided with little to no deceleration.
Origo reports that while the drivers survived with light injuries, other drivers were also endangered. The accident caused a 9-hour runway lock. The road had to be cleared because of the two wrecks, and in addition, a large heap of spilled sunflower seeds, the cargo of one of the trucks, also had to be removed off the site.
Bpiautósok, a site where recordings of traffic accidents are uploaded, also shared a post featuring a driver going in the wrong direction toward the highway exit.
In the video, the law-breaking driver of a Volkswagen meets up with an oncoming truck. The driver then proceeds to get out of his vehicle and, without a single care in the world, walks up to the truck driver for asking directions.
Luckily, the driver of the truck warns him that he is going in the wrong direction and the Volkswagen’s driver eventually corrects his mistake and takes on the direction of the traffic.
