    EDIT: On a side note, it appears white is the most popular car color in China.

    How about more colorful cars (those are so boring) that are electric! Then Biodefense isn't needed.

    Oy.

    That's what happens when you can't vote, you don't have democracy. Govt makes decisions on your behalf, thinking about their interests first. China... Dictatorship by committee, communist only in name.

    Even Auto-steer enabled AutoPilot wouldn't help with this, though BWD mode would be very welcome!

    Great for filters! I have to say it's a bottleneck but seen worse. the cars accumulating in around 40 rows and 60-70 deep were exiting at a rate that seemed that you would be stuck in that mire for 1-2 hours tops.
    Reminds me of Cortázar's "Southern Highway" (found a copy here The Southern Highway Julio Cortázar | Pegamequemegusta )

    I need to show my wife this. She will faint. If we get stuck for 20 seconds behind 4 other cars somewhere she starts complaining that "traffic is bad".

    There have been reports of Chinese truckers stuck in traffic jams that last DAYS! What a terrible life. Glad I'm here and not there.

    Anybody who has driven past the stockyards in New Mexico right before entering Texas on I-10 knows EXACTLY what the BWD is for!
