The Worst Traffic Jams In History

According to Wikipedia, traffic congestion occurs when a volume of traffic or modal split generates demand for space greater than the available road capacity; this point is commonly termed saturation.  Most of us – particularly if we happen to be sitting in our cars crawling along at a snail’s pace at the time – refer to it in far less civilized terms than that.

Following up on our recent post on which cities suffer from the most grueling traffic congestion on the planet – and looking ahead to the inevitable Memorial Day weekend tie-ups here at home – we took to the Internet to identify what are arguably the absolute worst traffic tie-ups of all time….

  • Beijing, China: August 2010.  Imagine being trapped in a 62-mile long traffic jam that lasted for an incredible 12 days. That just what happened to the poor folks attempting to traverse the Beijing-Tibet expressways in August of 2010, for which the trip took as long as three days. Not caused by closure or natural disaster, this all-time tie-up cause was simply the result of too many vehicles clogging the road, particularly a bevy of heavy trucks carrying construction supplies into Beijing, ironically for road work that was intended to help ease congestion.
