I can't even begin to tell you about the wrong way drivers I've seen recently. Driving north on Florida and some guy pulled out of the KFC off of Waters and drove on the wrong side of the road to make a left back into their parking lot on Bird.

Saw some guy exiting 275 on the entrance ramp.

Visiting my mom and some old man pulled out of the Big Lots on Gunn and drove on the wrong side of the median, then made a right hand turn onto Gunn from that.

Driving back from Ybor on Nebraska and some guy was in the wrong turn lane for his street... So he decided to drive the wrong way on Nebraska to get to his street (because, you know... Going a block in and making a right is just too much work).

It's ridiculous.

Russian Roulette on the roadways - especially late night when drivers are probably intoxicated, confused, don't know where they're going/lost, etc.....

Newly engaged couple among three killed in wrong-way crash on I-75

It was also not immediately clear where car at fault entered I-75 headed the wrong way.

tire shredders on those exit ramps that don't allow oncoming traffic to enter the wrong way are needed

Sadly too much drinking is the major cause! And Judges that are too lenient!
