A drone flying overhead captured the chaotic scene happening in 50-lanes of traffic. Several drivers got out of their cars to stroll the expressway and stretch their legs during the hours-long traffic nightmare.

According to the Daily Mail, the congestion was caused by a new checkpoint at the other side of the toll, which had the road lanes merging from 50 to less than 20 lanes. 

Many of the drivers were returning from 'Golden Week' celebrations which brings heavy tourism to the area. 
 
More than 750 million Chinese were expected to be hitting the road between October 1 and 7.
