Motorcyclists Tie Up Morning Traffic


Traffic on major highways has come to a standstill in several places when thousands of motorcyclists rode slowly in protest of raised insurance rates.

The protest has led to one major accident, when a car attempted to pass the slow-going cyclists and crashed into one. The 41-year-old motorcyclist was seriously injured, and the passing car driver was detained by police.
