We all think we’ve sat in the worst traffic jam the world has ever known at some point. But, as bad as congestion on British roads can be, we really only play at traffic jams.
Now China has proper traffic jams that don’t just last for mere hours, they go on for days. Jams like this one, that happened on the main expressway into Beijing after a holiday weekend. Apparently, it was caused by a new checkpoint that thinned the road down from 50 lanes to 30. And, looking at this footage, by Chinese drivers not having any notion of lane discipline.
We wouldn’t be surprised if some people are still there.
