DRIVERS faced a close-call at a busy Somerset roundabout as impatient motorists looking for a shortcut used the wrong lane. 

Traffic was building heading towards the roundabout at around 2pm on Friday. 

But instead of waiting in traffic, drivers were crossing the carriageway to use the right-hand turn lane for those driving away from the roundabout. 

Motorist David Brown caught the close-shave on video, as other 'idiot' drivers followed-suit to utilise the shortcut, including a lorry. 

The turning lane is used by those wishing to access the Shell Garage, the Travelodge, or Burger King.
