Drone Footage Of Beijing's Insane 50-Lane Traffic Jam Makes UK Bank Holiday Travel Look Luxurious

If traffic jams ever went head to head in a contest, China would win convincingly.

Drone footage showed off an insane number of cars at standstill on the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau Expressway.

The 50-lane motorway ground to a halt as approximately 750 million people finished celebrating the nation's week-long holiday.

The celebrations kicked off on 1 October which is when the People's Republic of China celebrates National Day.

A new checkpoint on the motorway reportedly caused the horrific queues.
