I don’t know if this idea is brilliant or just being crazy. But playing safe means you don’t want to be stuck in a traffic jam but you don’t want to go the wrong lane either, but you did it anyway only driving backwards.
So what if the police are coming? That’s not something you should be worried about, you just have to drive forward, and they won’t know what you were doing.
You just have to hope and pray that this person taking the video won’t come over and show them the evidence.
