Pedestrians and cars do not seem to get on all that well in China. While this is a known phenomenon elsewhere, they seem to take it to extremes there. This may have to do with the avatar the contestants assume at the time. We ourselves have noted how insensitive motorists are when we stroll across city intersections. Whereas when we are driving, every idiot seems to be jaywalking.
How Chinese Law Appears to Prefer Dead Pedestrians
Geoffrey Sant reported in The Slate that Chinese drivers “intentionally harm the pedestrians they hit further” after collisions. He described an incident in which a BMW driver drove over a child she knocked down two more times as the grandmother shouted, “Stop! You’ve hit a child!” Then she alighted from the car and said, “Don’t say that I was driving the car. Say it was my husband. We can give you money.”
Pteet is pteelless to hear such incidents are regularly caught on candid CCTV cameras. Another offending driver was not guilty of culpable homicide, after the Taizhou Court believed he thought he was “driving over a trash bag.” Recently, the Mail Online spotted new equipment in Daye City spraying unruly pedestrians with water.

It may also say, “It is now green light, please cross and be careful,” according to the circumstances. This could be a hacker’s delight come true, especially as some disruptive pedestrians are having fun testing the system with their feet. Traffic officers are monitoring the situation closely, although we understand there have been no arrests so far.
This Story Gets Weirder As We Investigate Further
A bystander told The Slate’s newshound, “If I hit someone, I’ll hit him again and make sure he’s dead. If you cripple a man, you pay for the injured person’s care for a lifetime. But if you kill the person, you only have to pay once, like a burial fee.”
This is all rather peculiar. We recommend taking auto insurance before visiting China. Pteet offers great accident damage cover for rental cars at a keen price you will not beat.
