I understand your frustration, and I'm just another member of the public involved in these regretable incidents from time to time, but I do think you may be underestimating the problems that the emergency services have to deal with. Diagnosing a death at the roadside is a major task, and then the rescue of survivors must take priority over traffic situations.
You say that 8 other deaths occured as a result of the incident that caused the major tailback, but that's heresay until proven. And the type of tailback you're describing is commonplace around here - the roads are at full capacity all the time and there's no space for more. Think yourself lucky you live in Swansea!
