AN unlicensed driver had her car impounded after being caught driving down the wrong side of Peninsula Link, 4am, Wednesday 20 September.
Members of the Frankston Highway Patrol narrowly avoided a collision with the woman who was driving south in the north-bound lane.
They chased her for three kilometres and managed to pull her over at the Cranbourne Rd exit. The 48-year-old, of Somerville, claimed she had “swerved to miss a possum” and was unaware she was in the wrong lane.
Senior Sergeant Mick Lamb, of Frankston police, said there was “real potential for a catastrophic outcome” in the incident.
The woman’s car was impounded for 30 days and she will be summonsed on a range of driving offences, possibly including conduct endangering life.
