China's government is so corrupt that they can't maintain laws. Plus, driving is a relatively new sport there. They have a heck of a long way to go. In a nation that puts authority above all, profit for those allowed it next, and human life not even on the list though, don't expect much. Actually, that is what is happening in the West.

Look to China to see our future.
