    They don’t seem to teach much street safety here, and the rule of traffic seems to be, “If I watch where I’m going, and you watch where you’re going, I don’t have to pay attention to what anyone does but me.”

    Too bad it didn’t happen in the US. Then her family’s insurance would get to pay for the truck driver to get his front end realigned and probably pay for any medical bills out of pocket.
    Which would serve as a much better example to people as to why they should actually bother to watch their children and/or give them some instruction on how to NOT commit suicide.

      Alex and I are not the owners and do not make decisions pertaining to format or stories.. we just regular commentators bro.

        You, i like.

        The other mods chased away/banned/censored the interesting posters (while inflammatory, generated interest).

        Alex was the worst, he never lost a fight he couldn’t edit/delete his way out of.

        Now, no content, and no one left….They sold the site, but it died before that happened. Look at the difference one year makes. The worst part is, I don’t think he’s set foot in this country.

        Are nickels the new wumao?

      Oh, it’s JabroniZamboni again. I just have one question for you, mon colon: can you admit to being racist without blaming alcohol?

      • Mao’s_a_Dong

        Hi. Lots of modding to do now, eh?

        You are smart, but your insecurities make you weak.

        • Alex Dương

          I’ll take that as a no. Adieu.

    There is very little street safety education in China. Most drivers don’t let the walkers pass first if they encounter, and most walkers don’t conform to rules. I really hate this, especially after I went abroad once and found that people in western countries conform to street rules. In some places, after realising that a person got injured badly, drivers choose to strike them again to kill her or him, because they don’t want to pay many money for the victim’s medical expenses and compensation as victims always got disabled.

    My sister was killed in street by a truck in our village, when she was on her way to primary school. She is a really nice sister, older than me, and cares for me. She was awake while my mom and dad toke her to hospital, and talked to my mom, “I don’t hurt mom, don’t worry.”

      Sorry to hear about your sister. That was a touching story.
      Yes we generally follow traffic rules here. It varies from place to place. On the East Coast, people drive more aggressively. In the Midwest, we drive very friendly and non-aggressively. Here in the state of Indiana, I noticed that the animals do not run out from in front of the cars like they did where I used to live. The only reason I can guess for that is that people here so commonly brake for the animals that they do not see an on coming car as a threat.
      Also here if someone deliberately runs down a person and kills them, they will be found and the very least they can expect is many years in jail for manslaughter, if not life for outright murder.
