China unveils... 60-mile traffic jam?

We will never complain about our commute again. Ever. According to MSNBC, gridlock traffic has now grown to cover a total of 60 miles between Beijing and Zhangjiakou. It's been that way since August 14th, and officials say that the situation doesn't look to improve until workers wrap up road repairs on September 13. If that wasn't bad enough, a slew of broken-down vehicles and fender benders have cropped up as a result of the slow-going commute.

Beijing 2010: The Stig's Chinese cousin comes out to tour the show

To our delight and dismay, there were fewer blatant vehicle clones from China's automakers littering the floor of the Beijing Motor Show this year. That's not to say we didn't encounter a slew of knock-offs, but it seems that the Chinese are finally coming into their own design-wise.
