China's 50 Lane Traffic Jam. A Commuter's Worst Nightmare

I thought traffic jams in the Lower Mainland were pretty bad, especially in Richmond.

This 50 Lane traffic jam, as a result of 50 lanes of traffic merging into 20, in Beijing, China is horrific!

Carmageddon!

China's 50-Lane Traffic Jam Is Every Commuter's Worst Nightmare - CityLab

Traffic after the holidays tend to be pretty awful. But China may have just turned every driver’s worst nightmare into reality as hundreds of millions of people headed home at the end of a Golden Week, a week-long national holiday.

Thousands of motorists found themselves stranded on Tuesday in what looks from above like a 50-lane parking lot on the G4 Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau Expressway, one of the country’s busiest roads. Some are dubbing the traffic jam a “carpocalypse,” while others are calling it “carmageddon.”

Though foggy weather may have played a role, the real culprit is a new checkpoint that forces traffic to merge from 50 lanes down to just 20, according to The People’s Daily. Traffic was reportedly backed up for hours

China is no stranger to these ridiculous traffic jams, especially on national highways. In 2010, gridlock spanning more than 74 miles on the stretch between the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and Beijing left drivers with nowhere to go for a staggering 12 days. That time blame fell on everything from road construction to broken down cars and fender-benders.

People played cards to pass the time while nearby vendors took the opportunity to sell food and water at premium prices. “If you said ‘no’ or complained about the price they threaten to break your [wind]shields,” one driver told the Inner Mongolia Morning Post.

In 2012, the government’s decision to grant free road travel during the same national holiday turned 24 motorways in 16 provinces into a massive parking lot with more than 85 million people stuck in their cars

The traffic jams are so big in China, there's no room to build bike lanes.

Those poor cyclists would get wrecked in the world's most populated country.

If you look to the opposite going lane you see that in reality the road is not bottled up as it appears.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

Lower Mainland population - 2million
LA population - 4million

Beijing population - 20million
Shanghai population - 24million
Guangzhou population - 14million

This is their problem, should not bring more Chinese to Vancouver, or else you will see this on Knight St. one day.

Already happening just try going to Richmond during any weekend afternoon/dim sum Bby central around Crystal mall. Traffic sucks and people do not know how to drive. They don't do shoulder checks and inside parking they love to just idle their cars waiting for anyone to leave ingoring everyone behind them.

Those lines look too orderly. We all know China folks never line up for anything. I call fake or Photoshop.

On a more serious note, how long did it take for that mess to clear up?
