The next time you get stuck in traffic, remember this scene of residents returning to Beijing, China, after a week-long national holiday. The video was posted October 7.
Another video, posted by metro.co.uk, included notes:
This was the horrific sight faced by many Chinese motorists as millions of people took to the roads during the week-long national holiday that China recently celebrated.
An incredible 50 lanes of motorway were gridlocked after a new checkpoint was installed outside the capital, causing a nightmare-inducing bottle neck in traffic.
People returning home after the national holiday were forced to wait for hours as more and more cars joined the queue, stretching out as far as the eye could see.
