Road works and accidents cause traffic jams the world over, and motorists in China are no strangers to traffic congestion, but Xinhua is reporting a jam that has lasted nine days over a 100 kilometer stretch of National Expressway 110, the highway between Beijing and Huaian in Heibei and Jining in Inner Mongolia. Traffic is moving at such a slow place that local hawkers are selling truck drivers food, and reportedly overcharging handsomely for it. Four hundred traffic police have been dispatched to keep order. With the road works not due to be completed until mid-September, there is little expectation that the congestion will ease soon.
