SUV driving the wrong way on one-way street

I saw an SUV driving the wrong-way on W Bertreau Ave between N Keeler and N Kedvale. I've seen the same SUV earlier driving the wrong-way on W Belle Plaine Ave near N Keeler. I think this is very dangerous for other drivers and pedestrians, who are not expecting to encounter a vehicle driving the wrong way. I was not able to get the license plate number because it was driving reasonably fast.

Has anyone else seen this SUV?

    What KIND of SUV? What marquis, what color?
    I live right there and have two SUVs and it wasn’t either of us! One of my neighbors saw this and called me thinking it might have been me! I would NEVER! Last Summer someone in a small red something was coming the wrong way on Belle Plaine (I assume trying to get to the highway). I blocked them and refused to give way forcing them to back up and take Kedvale.

  • It was a silver SUV. Don't recall the make/model.
    Today I saw a blue Ford Focus going the wrong way in the exact same location.
