A video has emerged of a car travelling in the wrong direction on a busy one-way street in Falkirk town centre.
In the dashcam footage the vehicle is seen heading down West Bridge Street towards the Town Hall as a series of cars drive the opposite way.
And not only was the motorist fortunate to avoid an accident but he was also lucky to escape the attention of officers in a police car they passed.
Police have since confirmed an internal inquiry has been launched to investigate the incident further.
The film was passed on to The Falkirk Herald by a concerned reader who said the incident happened the night before Sunday’s two-car crash at busy junction.
Concerns have since been expressed that a fatality may soon occur unless something is done to improve road safety in the area.
