    My question is: what’s stopping the cars.
    I see a convoy that all stopped at the same time.
    I don’t think the drivers all stopped voluntarily, at the same time.

    Couldn’t you just press the recirculate button and put pedal to metal to get through that shit?

      Not if your engine stalls from lack of oxygen, or something else kills the motor.
      I don’t know what else it could be, but I don’t think those cars stopped of their own volition.

    I suppose no one’s going to ask if this was Akbar engineered? Wildfires in Israel routinely are.

    Also, the road is elevated. Best chance is to get low down, in a dell.

    This is what the end must have looked like for those poor people.
