China's Olympic Traffic Jam

Chinese media claim that Beijing's horrendous traffic situation will get worse, as the Olympics 2008 draw closer.

The official Xinhua news agency said that Beijing has more than 2,000,000 registered vehicles, and over 4,000,000 people have a drivers licence. Officials predict the number of cars will exceed 3,000,000 by the time of the 2008 Olympic Games.

The increase in cars will worsen Beijing's already chronic levels of air pollution.
