Beijing Traffic

September 27th, 2005
Beijing Metro Station

One of the first things I noticed driving in from the airport was the traffic in Beijing. The traffic signals are just suggestions, the lines on the road are there for moral support, and whenever anyone does anything that remotely impedes your progress it is appropriate to honk your horn, regardless of who is technically correct. In fact correctness seems to be determined mostly by stubbornness and size.

I told Danna I would never drive in Beijing. If I was rich I would hire someone to drive my car to reduce stress. No one moves very fast so I have yet to see anything resembling a major traffic accident.
