A MAN has been charged after he allegedly mounted median strips and the footpath on a drive through Applecross yesterday morning.

Police allege the man drove on the wrong side of the road, over median strips, through red lights and along a footpath.

The man was driving a Ford Falcon panel van about 8.40am yesterday morning when police received numerous calls from members of the public.

When police arrived they saw the panel van travelling at low speed.

The vehicle was stopped on Canning Highway near Wilcock Street and a man was taken into custody.

A 46-year-old man from Halls Head has been charged with reckless driving, failing to comply with a direction to stop, having no authority to drive and possessing a prohibited drug (methylamphetamine).

He will appear in the Fremantle Magistrates Court today.
