Check out this 60 mile backup in China. 60. miles. SIXTY. From construction. Sixty miles. Keep repeating that in your head. It has to be made up. Sixty miles. Seriously.
I complain about traffic a lot. I used to think it was some sort of crime against humanity that it took me 30 minutes to make the 4.5 mile drive to work. If I were Chinese and stuck in a traffic jam where I moved .5 miles IN ONE DAY I would abandon my car in the middle of the highway and walk home. I’d probably be better off in the long run.
Remind me never to go to China.
