Public service drivers in Lusaka parked their buses on Tuesday morning in protest against increased penalty fees for traffic offences.
Scores of Lusaka residents were forced to walk long distances to work because of lack of public transport.
A check on some routes leading to the town centre found scores of people walking to their various destinations.
The situation however returned to normal around 09:00 hours after the drivers resumed their duties.
When contacted Police Spokesperson, Bonnie Kapeso, said the new fees have not been effected.
And Road Transport and Safety Agency Public Relations Officer, Mukela Mangolwa, said the agency is still charging old fees.
