Thousands stuck in anxiety-inducing traffic jam after Chinese holiday

Posted: Updated:
BEIJING -
Thousands of vehicles were stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic in Beijing as people were going to work after the country's "Golden Week" celebrations.
Chinese news agencies say the traffic standstill lasted for more than three miles; most of the people on the road traveling after the country's week-long national holiday.
The Chinese economy is booming, so there are more cars on the road, but the nation isn't able to keep up and build new highways.
