Winter weather can bring out the worst in drivers, including turning around and going the wrong way on a 400-series highway.

OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt Tweeted a minute-long video of drivers turning around on Highway 403 on Sunday morning saying "this is a disaster waiting to happen."

He said the drivers were heading through a construction zone in the Mississauga area.

Fortunately there were no collisions as a result of the drivers making U-turns on a busy highway.

Roads were already treacherous due to freezing rain across the region.

Very dangerous driving behaviour on #Hwy403 this morning. Drivers going the wrong way into oncoming traffic through a construction zone. This is very confusing for other motorists and could have resulted in serious collisions�� pic.twitter.com/CkwiEfAK1F
