Traffic Study Reveals Shanghai’s Driving Laws are Mearly a Suggestion.

Welcome back everyone.

Seems like it has been a while since I have posted, it has been a whole 10 days, and I have a few posts in the cage getting warmed up. In the meantime, I thought I would just post a short clip of something that I found while diving through my RSS feeds and doing a bit of random research on sustainabile transportation in China. The clip is essentially a 5 minute snapshop of a pretty typical intersection in China, and like the painful punchlines that The Office brings the average viewer, this clip is a great laugh for anyone who has sat at an intersection in China and been amazed by just how little the painted lines mean to any driver on the road. It is a clusterf**k, and it is sadly all too common ( I have seen police literally flee intersections like this one they realize the battle has been lost).

Will be back with a post or two of real substance shortly.
