Imagine getting stuck in a 50 lane-wide traffic that stretched for miles as road users travelled through the country during the last day of celebration of their week-long National Day celebration. That movement involved an estimated 750 million people moving through the country.
According to Carscoops,”the several miles-long carmageddon on the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau Expressway was caused due to a very narrow second checkpoint on the other side of the 50-lane wide tollbooth”.
Even the traffic Lagos experienced last week when our No 2 visited is most definitely nothing close to this.
But one good thing i noticed is that in the midst of this chaos, there still seems to be some semblance of order as the cars are all well aligned and have spaces in-between them unlike what would have obtained here in Lagos.
Imagine running out of fuel while still in this queue.
I refuse to imagine being in such traffic.
