Trailer breaks down, traffic goes chaotic

Postby admin » Fri Oct 20, 2006 4:20 am

KUALA LUMPUR: One trailer breaking down on Jalan Duta here was all it took to cause a citywide traffic jam yesterday.

According to city traffic police, the 20-wheeler broke down near the Jalan Duta hockey stadium due to engine problems.

Though the vehicle stalled at around 3pm, it took almost four hours for a mechanic to arrive.

The delay was believed to have been due to the fact that the mechanic was based outside the city. The stalled trailer blocked one lane of the two-lane road.

Traffic police said the bottle-neck caused traffic congestion on Jalan Kuching, Jalan Tun Razak, Jalan Ampang, Jalan Sultan Ismail and other major roads in the city.

Matters were made worse by heavy rain, minor accidents at various roads as well as heavy traffic to and from Seremban caused by the balik kampung rush.
