Traffic standstill

YET again the Gwent Police bring South Wales to a halt.

Fact: road accidents happen, always have, always will! In France this would have been resolved within two hours. The economic and social damage caused by the Gwent Police’s inability to offer a measured and sensible response to a common accident knows no bounds. Our hearts go out to those who have suffered but bringing Wales to a grinding halt is not the answer.

Accidents happen, bad luck. How many serious hospital appointments were missed? Funerals missed? Children left waiting for parents? The sick or dying not visited? No the perfect little microcosm of reality the Gwent Police live in must not be disturbed.

There is a million to one chance someone could be prosecuted and PC Plod can have his day in court.

Accidents will happen just as easily on the much called for relief road.

It’s a fact if life accidents happen.

Strong statement when there is nothing to say this was driver error as of yet don't you think? Granted, there are some brainless drivers using this stretch of the motorway, but there could be a number of reasons why it has happened.

It seem a problem with the Gwent police. The road is closed for several hours for relatively minor accidents. If it were the M25 the road would be cleared and re opened within a couple of hours

Jinxey, yes that was a strong statement but, as someone drives between Newport and Cardiff 5 days a week I feel it is justified. We have a variable speed limit on the M4 through Newport, it is variable for a reason and certainly not to be a cash cow. The number of drivers I see ignoring the variable limits and exceeding the limit is phenomenal.

To be fair they need to in
investigate the cause of the accident but with minor accidents that should require two hours at most
