When tourists, gov’t collide, traffic suffers

When tourists, gov’t collide, traffic suffers

A minibus of tourists started their vacation with a bang yesterday afternoon, getting their first taste of Phnom Penh’s driving before even reaching their hotel.

Their vehicle rear-ended a car on Russian Boulevard in Tuol Kork district, which happened to belong to the Ministry of Labour.

With neither party willing to admit fault, or give up an inch – literally or figuratively – they caused a traffic jam.

The district police arrived a few hours later and impounded both vehicles to ease congestion.
