The bottleneck was reportedly caused by a new checkpoint on the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau Expressway.
Residents had been celebrating “Golden Week,” where hundreds of millions seemingly traveled to rural or scenic destinations. Hundreds of police officers were brought in to help keep tempers in check as millions were stranded for up to five days. Hey, it’s like a second week of vacation…in your car…on hot pavement. (Thumbs up sign.)
