Wiola Nowicka's car wedged in driveway PolandWiola Nowicka's car wedged in the car park driveway (Picture: CEN)

Wiola Nowicka, 67, attempted to turn around in the car park's narrow driveway once she noticed the high prices she would have to pay.

Nowicka's bad sense of judgement resulted in the driveway being blocked for five hours, as her car was wedged between the driveway walls.

'I didn't mean to be a nuisance,' said Nowicka. 'After a few turns I couldn't go backwards or forwards any more.'

Engineers were able to get the car out from the tight space, with careful inch by inch precision.

Nowicka isn't the only driver over 50, to have misjudged at the wheel.

Earlier this year, an 86-year-old Californian woman crashed her car through the Rock N' Road cycling shop, narrowly missing customers.

Authorities discovered that the woman had hit the accelerator pedal by mistake, instead of the break.

Lucky no one was hurt in either of the incidents.
