A confused pensioner was stopped by Lancashire police as he set off down the motorway on his mobility scooter.
Startled officers raced to intercept the bemused OAP on a Lancashire motorway - thought to be the M55 near Blackpool.
Police eventually saw the funny side and posted a photo of the pensioner as a warning to others.
Lancs Road Police tweeted: "This fella was happy to pose for a photo for HO48 as he wanted to remind people that you should only enter the motorway network in a suitable vehicle.
"Otherwise you cause chaos & the Police come along & escort you off the motorway!!"
Luckily no harm was caused by his excursion.
