The Global Times reported last week that a traffic jam on the Beijing-Tibet Expressway extended more than 64 miles, and congestion lasted nearly two weeks. The jam was caused by was caused by a flood of cargo-bearing heavy trucks plus road work on the highway.
Officials originally expected the jam to last until September, but Agence France-Presse says it is largely broken up. However, a new traffic jam in the northeastern Chinese region of Inner Mongolia has stretched nearly 75 miles.
According to Sky News, "the motorway going towards China's capital and the neighbouring province of Hebei are now more like a car park than a major road, state TV reported. The traffic snarl-up began on Tuesday after local restrictions were enforced in Hebei."
The Reel Life can't promise that we'll ever stop complaining about traffic jams. But we'll at least acknowledge that it could be much, much, much, much worse.
