NO ENTRY SIGN IGNORED
THE sign clearly says “No Entry” but motorists have been driving into an alley near the Jalan Tun Ismail commercial business centre in Kuantan.
Frustrated motorists claim the presence of vehicles along the 40m one-way stretch pose a threat to other road-users.
Grocer Liane Loh said the stretch was sandwiched between two blocks of business premises, and vehicles which entered the road could only exit through the back alley.
“Motorists are supposed to only exit through the backalley and not enter the road. However, every day, motorists drive against the flow which poses a danger to everyone.
“I believe some motorists are too lazy to take a single big drive around the two blocks of business premises and choose instead to enter the side alley as a shortcut. The problem worsens during peak hours and lunchbreaks,” she said.
She said to make matters worse, some drivers choose to park their vehicles along the side alley, making the stretch even narrower.
Shortcut that’s illegal.
