Stomper Cho was in the midst of running errands this afternoon (Feb 7) when he was caught in a jam at the intersection of Paya Lebar Road and Ubi Avenue 2. 

According to the Stomper, the jam, located in front of AZ @ Paya Lebar, was caused by an inconsiderate driver who had parked a tipper truck across both lanes of the road to unload turf. 

Said the Stomper:

"This went on for a good 15 minutes until the affected drivers ran out of patience and started to sound their horns. Only then did the lorry reposition itself to the first lane to unload the turf, allowing traffic to flow on the second lane.

“This kind of incidences seem to be happening all too often, with the contractor blocking off traffic without regard for other road users.

“I hope the Land Transport Authority will clamp down on such inconsiderate acts, which cause a lot of frustration to road users.”
