If you thought the traffic jams are bad where you live, you might want to rethink it. It cannot possible be worse than in Beijing.
When millions of Chinese were driving home after the holidays recently, the highways were turned into enormous parking lots around the new toll road to the capital, where there the movement was painfully slow.
Images taken from a helicopter in Beijing, show the highway G4 Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau where it was full stop when 50 fields would become 20 after a tollbooth. The incident was just one of several in China during the holidays.
On all highways in big cities like Shanghai and Nanjing there were reported of overall traffic jams, but worst of all it was outside the capital Beijing, writes Australian 9News.
According to China's Information Office, 750 million cars were on the roads during the period 1 to 7 October in connection with the holiday around the National Day.
