    As Carolla said on his podcast this morning...

    "What do you expect, they're all Asian drivers."

    How are there no exit ramps for 100km?

    And the fascinating solution the Chinese have proposed to solve such traffic jams.

    When I first saw this, the first thing I thought was, “Doesn’t surprise me in the slightest.”

    The roads outside of the major cities are so woefully maintained, the trucks and cars are so dilapidated, particularly in the countryside, that this is just bound to happen.

    The driving there is amazingly awful as well. Sure, people in the cities can navigate the tight corners at times, but I’ve been out on the highways. They treat the white lines as suggestions and have no qualms about flying over multiple lanes because they just noticed their exit coming up.

    There is nothing to exit to. Why put an exit?

    I’ve been down streets there were just like that in China.

    Traveling the Third Ring Road in central Beijing at any time of day makes the 405 during Los Angeles rush hour seem like the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

    Going anywhere in Beijing? Better leave yourself a couple of hours.....or days. Best option there is a bike, where locals weave in out of traffic constantly.
