    I accidentally drove the wrong way up a highway (60 kmph) and didn't realise until I reached the intersection. Rather than stop in the middle of the intersection I went through (no other cars on the intersection) then quickly pulled into a driveway and corrected myself. I reported it to my employer who told me to do an OHS report but not to worry about reporting it to police. I feel absolutely dreadful about it and am worried that if I don't report it and someone else does, I could be in bigger trouble. What should I do under Traffic Law?

    Nothing. No-one was hurt, no property damaged.

    Though you do need to think about why it happened. Honest mistake is possible, medical issues need attention.
