Video: Man loses licence for driving wrong way on Australian motorway

An 81-year old Australian pensioner has had his licence revoked for driving the wrong way in the fast lane of the Citylink Toll Road in Melbourne for seven miles.

The video shows him driving what looks like an old Mercedes E-Class with a caravan, clearly oblivious to his terrible mistake. His action was caught on CCTV cameras operated by the toll road authorities, who closed the outside lane to traffic and mounted a vehicle blockade to try and stop the errant pensioner.
