I Will Never Complain About Traffic Again – Wait, That’s Not True…

Beijing currently has cars stuck on stretches of highway for the ninth day in a row.

According the Wired.Com blog, Autotopia:

“Whatever traffic hell you endured getting to work this morning is nothing compared to what’s happening in Beijing, where a mammoth traffic jam is entering its ninth day with no relief in sight.

Thousands of trucks have jammed National Expressway 110 since Aug. 14, creating a traffic jam stretching 100 kilometers. Authorities attribute the mess to highway construction exacerbated by accidents and breakdowns. Police are trying to keep tempers from flaring in what is the second massive jam to tie up the highway in the past month.”

Wonder if this is a valid excuse for missing work for a couple weeks…
