One motorist said he was left doing a “double take” after seeing the car parked in the lane facing the other way.
Another driver, who declined to be named, said the vehicle had moved into the lane for Perth before it nearly collided with

“That stretch of road can be extremely busy. I had to drive around the guy before going into the lane for Perth.
“You must think the person isn’t local to the area to have made that error – it was certainly quite dramatic.
“The driver must have got a bit of a fright, I’d imagine, when he saw all the traffic coming towards him.
“Being so near to the junction, thankfully no one was able to build up too much speed.”
Another driver said: “I’m amazed the guy’s got away with this. When we were driving up it looked like he was parked in the lane.
“It really could have been catastrophic if someone hadn’t been paying attention.
“It’s a busy stretch of road – anything could have happened.
“I’m amazed the incident wasn’t reported to the police, but it was all over so quickly.”
