The photos of this traffic jam aren’t pretty.

An accident has caused a huge pileup on the Shenzhen-Shantou highway. ┬áCars are currently backed up for more than 70 kilometres after an accident shortly after 3pm today (April 3). ┬áThe long stretch of road has become a virtual parking lot, with people getting out of their cars because nobody’s moving.

If you have plans to head to Shantou, best shelve them for a while. If you must go though, police are asking people to take highway 324 instead.
