Think L.A. Traffic is Bad? Check Out China's 60-Mile, 9 Day Jam
Meet the Beijing-Tibet Expressway. It may seem like a joke, but apparently there's a 60-mile, nine-day traffic jam and it could last for weeks. People are reportedly playing cards and vendors have entered the freeway to sell food at high prices. What's causing this? "Insufficient traffic capacity … caused by maintenance construction."
And apparently, gridlock like this is a sign of the future. China is the largest car market in the world, says the Financial Times.
