Use in the Burnout Series, pre-Paradise
If the player drives in the wrong direction for too long, the words "Wrong Way" appears on the player's screen and a huge red wall will appear a few yards ahead and will bounce the player off, as described above.
Use in Burnout Paradise
There is no Wrong Way in Burnout Paradise as the gameplay has been designed so that the player must find their own way through the city. Wrong Way does not appear in Stunt Run or Road Rage but appears in a different form in Race, Marked Man, Burning Route, Online Road Rage & Online Cops and Robbers as a red arrow on the player's compass. The red arrow only appears to show that the player is heading in the opposite direction away from the finish/target point.
Use in the Burnout Series, post-Paradise
The red wall also appeared in the first Burnout game after Paradise, Burnout CRASH!. When a car gets to the edge of the intersection, the wall causes it to bounce back, refraining from leaving the junction.
