    That's amazingly bad.

    (I think this belongs in the Current Events section, though)

    It would probably be quicker for the Chinese government to have an adjacent highway built.

    9 days! They don't do things by half in China. Get driving America or Russia, we can't let those Chinese win.

    I have been in similar traffic....

    one time on June 2009 on my way from LA to Las Vegas....

    There was a horrible car accident on the I-5 that I recalled speding 3 hours in traffic. Traffic was stopped completly that everybody turned off their cars and got outside at the 115 degree temperatures and started playing soccer, taking pictures, sitting down in the freeway...

    I would say traffic was backed up for a good 15-20 miles. :rolleyes:

    I dont see how "The Red Dragon" can ever awaken if their infrastructure is so laughable right now.

    Expand beyond their means a little too quickly? :confused:

    Lazy bums need to dig out their bicycles again.

    60 miles, even going at 10MPH is 6 hours.

    I average around 20 MPH, but probably not in that polluted air though.
