We're not sure what this Mini driver was attempting by slowing down in the extreme right lane of this Australian freeway but the sudden braking caused an SUV to crash into its rear.

USA - Congested traffic has the potential to irate motorists. The longer the delay the more likely some will become desperate in their bid to overcome huge delays. 

In a bid to beat the bumper-to-bumper traffic, one motorists, trapped in a congested road, decided to beat the system by facing oncoming traffic. We're guessing their logic was "it'll be all be okay as long as another car doesn't head in my direction".

Pushed back

Unfortunately for the motorists, another driver put an end to his/her traffic shortcut.

In a clip uploaded to YouTube, the driver is forced to reverse all the way back in full view of other drivers.

To make matters worse, the driver struggled to keep their car in a straight line, grinding the curb and even backing onto the pavement a few times.
