Was this driver confused and didn't understand the junction? Or were they cutting corners?

Either way, they nearly caused a crash in Banbury after they used the wrong lane during yesterday's (Monday's) busy morning traffic.

The incident was recorded on the dashcam of local resident Maja on her way to work just before 8am on Monday January 16 at the junction of Canal Street and Windsor Street (A4260).

Maja said: "The incident caused me to feel very stressed. The rest of my journey to work was spent wondering what would have happened if I had driven faster?

"In the event that I were to get hurt, who would take care of my teenage son and my dogs? Being a worrier, all kinds of thoughts flooded my mind.

"The moment I reached the work car park, I needed to sit in the car for a few minutes to clear my head."

Maja sent in the footage and reported the incident to the police.

Maja said: “Regardless of how confident drivers may feel on the road themselves, I wish they were more considerate about their driving.”
