This footage from China shows the driver of a Suzuki Jimny use a pedestrian bridge to make a U-turn after missing his off-ramp.

According to the South China Morning Post, the Jimny driver was fined 200 yuan (that's a little over R500) for manoeuvering his vehicle over the pedestrian bridge, which had a weight limit of 1 000 kg, after Xinjiang traffic officials caught him in the act.

The driver apparently missed his exit and decided to turn around by taking the previous-generation off-roader up the pedestrian stairs, over the highway and down the other side.
