China 60 Mile Gridlock Portends US Future
By Frosty Wooldridge
Los Angeles, California: Most of us think Los Angeles traffic sets the benchmark for the worst gridlocked traffic in the world. Rush hour traffic runs from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. six days a week. California adds 1,700 people and 400 more cars net gain 24/7 with no end in sight as they head toward adding 20 million within 30 years.
Mr. Bob Dane, Communications Director, www.Fairus.org, sent me his latest alert from China, "Worst traffic jam ever? Gridlock spans 60 miles".
China adds 27,000 new cars to its highways every seven days according to a recent NBC report by Brian Williams. Their air remains some of the dirtiest and most polluted in the world. Their rivers run in raw sewage. Their gridlocked highways cannot be solved as China adds eight million more people every year on their way from 1.3 billion today to hitting 1.5 billion by mid century.
"Motorists in China play card games and chess to pass the time."
"A traffic jam stretching more than 60 miles in China has entered its ninth day with no end in sight," state media reported.
The report from China said, "Cars and trucks have been piling up since August 14, 2010 on the National Expressway 100, which is also known as the G110, the major route from Beijing to Zhangjiakou," Xinhua News reported. Officials expect the congestion to continue until workers complete construction projects on September 13, 2010.
"State media reported that Chinese drivers have become accustomed to the severe delays, noting a similar jam in July that slowed traffic for close to a month.
"Britain's Sky News reported that the snarls have been commonplace since May as a result of a spike in the number of trucks using the roads, with the daily peak reaching about 17,000."
No Way to Solve Their Gridlocked Traffic as China Continues Population Growth
"Insufficient traffic capacity on the National Expressway 110 caused by maintenance construction since August 19 is the major cause of the congestion," a Beijing Traffic Management Bureau spokesman told the Global Times.
"Chinese national radio reported Sunday that minor traffic accidents and broken-down vehicles have complicated the traffic mess," Xinhua reported.
"Approximately 400 police officers are patrolling the road 24 hours a day in an effort to keep the situation calm," Sky News said.
"Concerts? Motorists have taken to card games or chess to pass the time, Sky News reported. "Others joked that "concerts should be held at each congested area every weekend, to alleviate drivers' homesickness. Residents from communities alongside the expressway have seen opportunity in the traffic slowdown, setting up food and drink kiosks for the drivers. Some drivers have complained of price gouging. One truck driver, identified by his last name Huang, told the Global Times that "instant noodles are sold at four times the original price while I wait in the congestion."
The truck driver added, "Not only the congestion annoys me, but also those vendors.
Nowhere in the reports did anyone address the factors of overpopulation, too many vehicles, not enough roads and now way to catch up building roads with an added 27,000 new cars added every seven days!
