Can’t see the above video?

Comments from Youku:


These people actually reacted quite commendably. [The bystanders helped.]


The taxi driver on the side was very brave, proactively going to block him, should be commended/rewarded.


Are those two green cars taxis? The one that backed up was very gei li.


If there’s something Chengdu has a lot of, it is good people.


Wow! Gei li! [The officer] gets off and immediately smashes open the car window! This traffic officer is pissed!


Too outrageous! Pull him out and beat him!!!


Haha, us Chengdu people really are very warm-hearted/enthusiastic, all going to block that car.


The public bus driver and those green taxis all acted commendably!


The speed with which the people of the Heavenly Kingdom gather around to watch/look is truly quick…


This driver has a death wish.


Wearing an official uniform is indeed powerful … Were her not wearing this uniform, I bet he would’ve been taken away by the car, nor would the crowd help …


That [fake] taxi driver is screwed for sure, just look at the crowd of people gathering. And the traffic officer just yanks that driver out!


Ai yo!! Gathering around to watch! Gathering around to watch! So lively/exciting!! What is so interesting to gather around and look at!


To watch the show, that woman ran so fast.


Haha, the traffic officer was really angry too, he even smashed the black taxi’s glass window.


Unity is strength!!! Go Chengdu people!

Many of the over 2300 comments over 79 pages were praise for the reversing taxi and public bus driver as well as everyone who helped. This video currently has over 13k upvotes, versus ~360 downvotes.

Thanks to Maxiao for the tip!
