Mini Accident Mega Jam

This evening, I noticed that all the small roads near where I stayed...
...  were jammed up with cars. I was trying to fetch Joshua to tuition school. After I was caught in the jam for half and hour, we finally decided that we should cycle to the tuition school! In 30 minutes, we didn't even cover 300 meters! How disgusting! I thought it was a major disaster! So, after "delivering" Joshua, I decided to do some investigation!
So this is the accident, which happened just across the Pujut 7 bridge and just after the petrol station!
Thanks to the tow truck which arrived at 7:20PM. In just five minutes, the car was towed away!
Literally every road in Pujut was jammed up. I noticed that our drivers are extremely busy body! They all slowed down to look at the unfortunate car! Some of them look for some 5 seconds before moving on! During peak hours, this behaviour is simply unacceptable. Worse, no one respect the yellow box at Pujut 7 traffic light. Do you know the use of the yellow boxes?

exactly. no one respects yellow boxes! eventhough the cars ahead didnt move, the cars behind all clogged up the yellow box at the pujut 7 junction. it causes so much inconveniences to other drivers, esp those coming from pujut 7b or 5b.

Oh... thats why we were having this traffic jam yesterday... unbelievable.
It shows the real attitude of Miri drivers.
Some drivers even blocked the Pujut 7 roundabout causing the traffic jam for those heading from Lutong to City centre.These "kiasu" drivers should have given way to others.

Thanks for the update - I was wondering what catastrophe actually happened to cause such an unprecedented traffic chaos.

Once again Mirians proved themselves worthy to be called SAKAI (or busybody).

You got a very good shot for the long queue of vehicles.

Yes...definitely our drivers need to go to Courtesy School. hehehehe. I drive a small car and so few people would give way while I notice big four wheels are kings on the road.
