Stuck in Traffic for 9 Days

China's nine-day traffic jam stretches 100km - Yahoo! News

How is this even possible? 9 days?!

"Honey, I'll be home next week. I'm stuck in traffic"

Re: Stuck in Traffic for 9 Days

62 miles. How would you react? When the GPS says no alternate route available, and has a big red never ending traffic line. Can you say road rage!!!! Also Every politician would be having someone's head in the Highway section.

That's what I'd do first ! Or leave early and make sure that I take something with me for the ride !

This reminds me of my senior year of college when I used to skip class any time it was raining because I didn't want to walk two blocks to campus. I could have just driven, but that wasn't how I wanted to do things.

This renews my faith in the commie system of government being unable to adopt to the needs of its people, traffic jams indeed.

idk about that. i heard on news radio that they are moving at 1/3 a mile per DAY!

that officials are trying to get food, water and security there and that the village people are selling food, etcon side of road.

i think people have been stuck in their vehicles this whole time.

Yup, that's China for you. Awful traffic, awful roads, air that shouldn't be breathed, little concern for genuine law. The food is great, the economy is improving, but otherwise the place is a mess.

Re: Stuck in Traffic for 9 Days

Just like when I-95 slows down then speeds back up for no reason on my drive home everyday the epic traffic jam in China has eased up: China's epic traffic jam 'vanished' - Yahoo! News

It was probably all caused by one old lady driving 20mph below the speed limit with her blinker on. She FINALLY got to her exit.
