      You have to get people enforcing them in the first place. China only enforces certain laws and seems to ignore others. Hell, I’ve seen plenty of times cops driving through red lights or other drivers doing so in front of the cops here.

        Green means cuckold, yellow a coward. Chinese love to get lucky with red. And yes, I’ve seen all kinds of funny things within a day over there. By the end of a week, I’ve practically attained samsara enlightenment.
