they obviously didn't think about things above the lane, so they had closed only that one where the truck was parked

Yeah, but they should close just one. I think it is possible to do it in one lane.

It wasn't practical to close both lanes. What SHOULD have been done, was to have manual traffic control for the open lane. That way, the person controlling traffic could have stopped the truck, in addition to reducing the speed of traffic passing the work area.

And this is why you never overload your vehicle.

manual control is not acceptable at motorways. the most proper thing would be to have the whole half of motorway closed and to organize traffic at the other half. why they didn't do it? probably because of the fact that works on changing regulation of traffic would take them at least 3 hours, and finnising probably the small repair (i think they've been changing burnt bulb) takes 10 minutes.
on the other hand - there is also enough space at emergency lane to bypass working zone. maybe that would be the best solution.

Funny situations you say? How about llamas on the loose on Ireland's busiest motorway interchange?!





Fortunately there was no accident.

Unfortunately the Youtube footage is gone.

They have since been rounded up and loaded into trucks and traffic in the area has returned to normal.

I remember seeing pictures a few years ago where there was a small accident right in front of a advertisement panel that said "surprise!".
