Metro Manila's rush-hour dilemma now seems tolerable after various news agencies reported about a traffic jam in China which has gone on for nine days.

The traffic jam, which started on August 14, stretches for 100 kilometers and involves "thousands of trucks between the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region" and Beijing, CNN reported.

"Traffic congestion is a common problem in China," the report said. "But construction on a section of the Beijing-Tibet Expressway has forced more traffic to National Expressway 110, which runs roughly parallel."

Aside from the roadworks, motorists are also held back by accidents and car breakdowns which have occured during the traffic jam, CBS reported in the video below.
