Think you had a hellish commute this morning?
Just be thankful you're not in China, where a traffic
jam stretching more than 100 km (62 miles) has
forced drivers to keep their feet planted on brake
pedals for nine days.
The gridlock, which started August 14, involves
thousands of trucks between the Inner Mongolia
Autonomous Region and the Chinese capital of
Beijing, according to state media.

urban infrastructure construction and spend
