Driver performs ‘150-point turn’

A driver at a shopping centre in Queenstown made their life much more difficult than it needed to be by turning their car completely around rather than simply reversing straight out of a parking space.

The woman spent nearly four minutes performing a series of careful manoeuvres, without hitting the trolley bay or a black car parked two spaces over, before managing to drive away from the Five Mile Shopping Centre carpark.

The incident was captured on camera in late July this year and while it may be painful to watch, how she eventually got out is also pretty impressive.

Hundreds of thousands of people have watched the footage of the driver’s painstaking getaway, with one person joking: “I’ve been reversing out of car parks wrong all this time. I need to do a 150-point turn.”
