Carmageddon: This Is What 750 Million Chinese Hitting The Road Looks Like

I drove in Manila for almost two years, so I can drive anywhere on the planet. Never saw traffic jams like that though.

From an aerial view, the Theory of Constraints at play.

Looks about as bad as a hot summer Saturday on the Garden State Parkway. But that smog... ugh. Poor buggers.

4pm on any given Friday at the MidPoint Bridge in Cape Coral, FL. Bring your supper, and a piss bucket.

You know what I'm grateful for? I can walk to work. Less than a block, as a matter of fact.

Nobody who's ever experienced the maddening ineptitude of an Asian driver should be surprised.

Sure the lanes are full but they'll be empty in an in hour.

Try the veal, tip your waitress.

I see some anecdotes on American traffic debacles above in the comments, but . . . .

FIFTY lanes? Any place in N. America, or anywhere in the world other than China with fifty lane highways?

Just another reason, among many, not to visit the Mainland. I've sat in a lot of Asian traffic jams (Jakarta was the worst, pre-1997 Bangkok a close second), but this is a whole new level of Hell.
