A group of men have stood on a street corner to warn unsuspecting drivers that police were waiting to catch people who were making an illegal left hand turn.
New South Wales police were waiting halfway down Princess Street, Brighton-Le-Sands, in Sydney’s south, where it is illegal to turn left during certain night hours.
However, friends who live in the region decided to wait wait on the corner just after the beachside suburb’s strip of restaurants.

‘No, no, no, go straight! Go straight,’ one could be heard shouting.
Another said: ‘No, no, no, no don’t go!’
The group claim to have ‘saved’ 50 drivers from being penalised.
Several social media users claimed the men were the heroes society didn’t know they needed.
One social media user said: ‘What feels illegal but isn’t’.
Another said: ‘You policed this corner better than the police’.
One person said her father has been fined at that same spot and it is notorious for getting motorists into trouble, because during the day it is legal to turn left.
