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.
