I understand I’m a guest in China and should respect the customs and practices of the people but down the road from my apartment there is a cross section where all the Gypsy Cabs drive as if there were still on a bike.

Two clips taken today illustrate this point better then anything else.

I consider the walking signs where the light tell you it’s safe to walk merely a suggestion. Take a look at how smoothly a series of cars drive through a red light.

Here we see a car carefully crossing the street and then sneaking itself in the the bike lane which is intended for traffic in the opposite direction.
