The truckers closed the road to passenger vehicles late on Tuesday, after the Croatian authorities decided to selectively open the border to freight traffic allowing only the trucks carrying perishables and hazardous materials to pass.

This decision angered the truckers who had been waiting for nearly five days in a 12 kilometer-long line to cross the border. They staged a protest by halting the traffic for all vehicles from both directions.
