29 Dump Truck Drivers Arrested After Closing Cinta Costera

(MENAFN- Newsroom Panama)

Some 29 dump truck drivers were detained during road closures on the Cinta Costera in Panama City on Thursday, June 1.

The drivers were placed under the orders of the Justice of the Peace; while their vehicles were towed with a crane to clear the tracks and taken to various yards.

The National Police inform that in the face of the closure of streets, roads, avenues, and accesses to the different sectors of the capital city, the police units remain alert at various points to protect the comprehensive security of all users and guarantee free transit.

Thousands of people, including workers and students, were trapped for several hours on the Centenario highway after dump trucks closed the streets and the accesses to the North and South corridors in protest of overdue payments.
The closure caused a domino effect that affected several alternative routes that were overwhelmed and collapsed.
Several students who were going to their universities found it necessary to start their way on foot since the dense traffic was paralyzed.
