BEIJING: You might never complain about the morning rush hour again in your life after you see how thousands of cars in China were brought to an absolute halt at a toll booth in an epic traffic jam.

After the long weekend away, this incredible bottleneck hit the residents hard as a checkpoint reduced the 50-lane freeway to just 20 lanes.


Not only Beijing, but cities like Shanghai and Nanjing also witnessed horrific traffic jams.

According to China’s National Tourism Administration estimates, between October 1 and 7 more than 750 million Chinese were on the move.
