And You Thought Your Commute Sucked
A 60-mile traffic jam near the Chinese capital could last until mid-September, officials say.
Traffic has been snarled along the outskirts of Beijing and is stretching toward the border of Inner Mongolia ever since roadwork on the Beijing-Tibet Highway started Aug. 13. The following week, parts of a major road circling Beijing were closed, further tightening overburdened roadways.
Chinese state media said today that if the current rate 2000 car sales a day keeps up, average driving speed through Beijing could end up at 9 MPH. 9! Wait until they figure out how to institute a replica of the SFPark parking system on their clogged highways. It's genius!
