Never Drive in the Wrong Direction

Driving in the wrong direction can lead to a tragic accident that involves other innocent people.
Never drive in the wrong direction.

Expressways are one-way

Check the direction of traffic indicated on road signs and on the road surface.
If you accidentally head off in the wrong destination or go past your destination, continue driving and exit at the next interchange.
Do not make a U-turn on the main road or near a tollgate.

If you see a car going in the wrong direction

Report by calling 110, contacting staff at a rest area or toll booth, or using an emergency telephone at a rest area. If calling from a mobile phone or smartphone, ensure that a passenger (not the driver) makes the call.

We provide information alerts about cars going in the wrong direction.
