Earthly Mission

Longest Traffic Jam in History

Imagine being trapped in a 62-mile long traffic jam that lasted for an incredible 12 days. That’s exactly what happened to the poor folks attempting to traverse the Beijing-Tibet expressway in August 2010. The trip ended up taking as long as three days.

Not caused by closure or natural disaster, this all-time tie-up cause was simply the result of too many vehicles clogging the road, particularly a bevy of heavy trucks carrying construction supplies into Beijing, ironically for road work that was intended to help ease congestion.
