An 83-year-old man was found driving a golf cart into oncoming traffic on the Loop 202 SanTan Freeway in Chandler early Thursday, officials said.

State troopers and Chandler police stopped the man, who was found unharmed. And it wasn’t the first time, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

The man was found driving his golf cart on Interstate 10 near Wild Horse Pass on July 11, DPS said in a tweet.

The driver has “mental health issues associated with old age.”

He was safely returned to his wife’s custody, DPS said.
