Massive Beijing Traffic Jam

140 traffic jams... I'm not even sure what that means. 140 Sig Alert equivalent incidents? 140 gridlocked intersections?

I was just on this stretch of road two Fridays ago though headed north instead of south as in the photo (Dongsishitiao Bridge is north of Chaoyangmen Bridge). My friend's office is near Dongsishitiao Bridge and 2nd Ring Road. There was a lot of traffic but not nearly what is seen in the picture. Probably the rain made traffic worse.
