Bottled up road

SINGAPORE - Cartons of canned and bottled soft drinks fell off this trailer at about noon on Wednesday, blocking two lanes of traffic on Gambas Avenue for about four hours.

The driver of the trailer was making a turn along the road towards Yishun Avenue 7 when the cartons came crashing onto the road.

The police were at the scene to help, and the cans and bottles were subsequently cleared.

The driver was issued a summons for failing to secure the goods to his vehicle. As the offence was compoundable, he paid a fine of $130 and was given four demerit points.
