Gridlock as China begins its 'Golden Week' holidays


ChinaCongestion

From the Telegraph (via AE): Gridlock as China begins its 'Golden Week' holidays :

"When 1.3 billion people all go on holiday at the same time, a little chaos is perhaps to be expected. But it was a generous decision by Chinese politicians to grant free road travel, by suspending motorway tolls, that saw hundreds of thousands of drivers spend the first day of the Mid-Autumn Festival on Sunday in gridlock."
