Traffic Purgatory


There’s an intersection in Qingdao (Haier Rd and Tongan Rd) that I have to pass through to get anywhere, and with the approach of warm weather and summer, the traffic is becoming horrific. While traffic is usually bad all year round, people are flocking from the northern area of the city to the beach, and they all apparently have to pass through this intersection. If I pass through around rush hour, the FOUR LANE road is backed up around half a mile, and takes between 20-30 minutes to get through the light. If there is purgatory on earth, I think this intersection around 5:30 on a Friday is it.
