Footage has been released showing a lorry driver attempting a U-turn on a motorway after driving the wrong way up an exit slip-road.
Leonid Papachin performed the manoeuvre in a 40-tonne truck on the M6 Toll in Lichfield, Staffordshire.
The 51-year-old received a 15-week suspended prison term at Cannock Magistrates' Court last month after pleading guilty to dangerous driving.
He was also given an 18-month driving ban and made to pay £85 costs.
The Lithuanian national had been working in the UK for two months when he committed the offence at around 17:30 BST on 23 October.
Motorway patrol manager Ch Insp Jed White said: "I hope that it serves as a deterrent to anyone who thinks they can put other motorists in jeopardy by ignoring motorway regulations."
Dude #ed up and tried his best to safely correct it.
Out of curiosity...what would you do if you accidentally went the wrong way down a road like that?
His license was suspended and luckily no one was hurt...I feel that is about right.
