Traffic backed up at the Port of Oakland during the evening commute Thursday and temporarily stopped.

A few trucks were rolling along, but many sat in lines, not moving at all.

The union's secretary-treasurer explained that one of his members found a hangman's noose inside a truck on the terminal.

It's the second noose found in two weeks. The first was found tied to a fence at the same terminal, and six months ago -- racist graffiti was found spray painted on a piece of equipment.
