China's roadways are quickly over-taking Russian streets as the main setting for crazy videos on the Internet. This traffic stop in the Sichuan province posted last week is just the latest. Police pulled over the van for being over-crowed, but they didn't realize just how over-crowed it was until people began spilling from the open doors, according to the Independent. The six-seater van was being used to transport workers to a construction site. Somehow 35 people managed to cram themselves into the transport, like a clown car, only slightly more depressing.

China's roads are becoming more chaotic as car ownership becomes the most visible symbol of wealth and upwards mobility in the country. There will soon be the same number of cars in China as in the US, according to the Wall Street Journal. The increase of cars on the roads may signal a booming economy, but has also created a lot of problems. China is already infamous for its days-long traffic jams on 40 lane highways. Smog is also a major challenge. On Monday, Beijing suffered its worst air pollution of the year, according to the Associated Press. Visibility was cut to several hundred meters and the levels of hazardous tiny PM2.5 particles in the air exceeded 600 micrograms per cubic meter. The World Health Organization considers the safe level of PM2.5 particles to be 25 micrograms per cubic meter on a 24-hour average basis.
