This jam took place in Beijing,a city in china.China is known for massive production and great automative market.Transportation also means a lot when products might have been produced.This happened in 2010 at the Beijing-Tibet express way which is near Beijing.It was caused by trucks carrying construction materials to Beijing,also the interesting thing about this traffic jam is never the number of days (12) it lasted but the 62miles(100km) of land it covered.

The lane was initially meant for only meant for the trucks but due to population of cars in that areas,passenger cars are now allowed to use the lane and this really caused the jam.There are other records you wouldnt believe it happened at the Guinness book.
