More traffic gridlock in China
China's monster traffic jam reared its head again, with trucks and cars backed up for up to 18 miles on a road north of Beijing, although that is a third the size of what it was.
"The traffic flow is very slow," said a spokeswoman from the Beijing Traffic Management office.
State media said the latest jam on the Beijing-Tibet road was caused by an accident and road maintenance.
The traffic jam comes four days after an even bigger one - stretching to 60 miles at one point - was broken.
