Think your commute to work is bad? CBC.ca reports on a traffic jam in China that is now more than 100 kilometres long, has been going on for nine days, and could last for weeks. One driver reported being stuck in the jam for three days and two nights. Meanwhile, roadside vendors are reportedly tripling or quadrupling their prices to take advantage of the stranded motorists. Highway to Hell, indeed.
