Whether on a road trip or just commuting, being in a traffic jam is a real downer in anyone’s day.
Except for cursing in the car, what can you do to deal with this nightmare? Perhaps we can learn some tips from Chinese people.
May 1 was Labor Day, which is a national holiday in China. At this time of year, the weather is very pleasant, and Chinese usually seize the chance to go on a trip with friends or family over the long weekend.
This leads to masses of cars on the expressway all over the country, especially in cities or provinces with popular scenic spots. If there’s an accident, it’s a disaster not just for the people involved, but for other motorists due to traffic jams.
However, Chinese people are particularly good at dealing with long waits on the road.
