The end all of Traffic Jams

I don't deal with heavy traffic well. I avoid driving in Anchorage or downtown Fairbanks because I find it a mix of scary and infuriating that's hard to describe - When I briefly lived in Utah, the traffic was a bit of a nightmare, and I took the train 9 times out of 10. So, when I read about a 9 day, 100km long traffic jam in China...

I'm very glad I consider College Road "heavy traffic!"

Three cars waiting to cross the thoroughfare here is annoying enough!

I saw that story too. The drivers seem used to it though, judging by their reactions and quotes.

They never mentioned the actual time for a vehicle to traverse the jam though.
