Share A Wish For The Year Of The Dog.
2018-2-16 11:36
As we enter the Year of the Dog, one can't help but wish that dog owners in China improve their social responsibility and not let their dogs be a public nuisance. In years gone by, the media was awashed with cases of dog bites, dogs terrorizing people in public, dog poo all over, dogs barking incessantly in residential neighhoods depriving residents of sleep, etc. It is hoped that dog owners always keep their dogs on the leash when in public, clean up their dog poo, stop their dogs barking ...

Share Passengers Are Jointly Liable with Drunk Drivers!
2018-2-15 13:08
CCTV News reported that a certain province (name forgotten) has passed a law holding passengers in a drunk driver's car jointly responsible for drunk driving!What a brilliant piece of legislation!Imagine this scenerio; a traffic poliiceman pulls over a driver on the highway, breath-test him and finds him over the limit, the officer then tickets all the passengers on the spot!It forces passengers to self-police and prevent any drunken friend from getting behin ...

Share Forum Must Never Become A Platform for Personal Vendetta!
2018-2-15 12:18
Recently I posted two threads that started a heated discussion; they are, " China's Government Never Shut Down! "and" Many Chinese Have Become Rich Before They Have Become Civilized" . Seneca, a vocal opponent, employed all sorts of tactics, incluidng half truths, twisted facts, and downright lies to counter the opinion expressed in those threads. That's not a problem; I can handle all that;I can debunk his lies! But, f ...

Share China's Government Never Shut Down!
2018-2-12 12:16
Thank goodness we are living in China and not the US where the government has recently shut down while politicians bicker over various issues, causinguntold miseries to millions of Americans and visitors there. What does that say about the democratic system, when the world's most powerful nation and its largest democracy was forced to shut down its government? There are many diehard advocates of democracy right here on Forum and elsewhere who constantly lambast China ...

Share Many Chinese Have Become Rich Before They Have Become Civilized!
2018-2-8 12:51
The Reform and Opening Up Policy has opened the door to many Chinese to get rich quick, and some became extremely rich!But their newfound wealth has not made them behave any better than their poorer compatriots! The rich, with access to modern gadgets, tools and machines, but without the civliized mentality,is a public nuisance and a danger to society. Whereas previously they rode around on bicycles, today, they zoom around in fast cars, beating r ...

Share China's Traffic Violation Penalties Are A Big Joke!
2016-8-11 14:03
China's traffic violation penalties are so light, they don't act as a deterrent at all! For instance, just today on CCTV News, a motorist was chased through busy city streets by a traffic policeman on motorcycle at high speed, weaving in and out of lanes, endangering other road users. The motorist finally stopped at a set of traffic lights, only because his path was blocked by other vehicles waiting at the lights. He was found to be driving without a licence, which was withdrawn bec ...

Share What Does It Mean To Have A 5000-Year Old Civilization?
2016-7-31 13:13
China claims to have a civilization of 5000 years old; well and good, few would dispute that. However, that claim stands out in stark contrast with the social behavior of its people, a behavior which is anything but civilized! Many foreigners have personal encounters with their behavior as well as seen it played out on national television. The Chinese don't obey their nation's laws, rules and regulations, be it tarffic laws, pollution laws, food safety laws, etc. For ...

Share China's Food Safety Concern
2016-7-3 12:44
The NPC Standing Committee has just reviewed the the food safety situation in China after the implementation of the food safety law in October last year. The report card makes for poor reading, with red ink all over. There are still many areas that fall short of the law. For instance, the use of 'gutter oil', made from food leftovers collected from restaurants, is still prevalent, and a major concern for consumers. Others include the misuse of pesticides in farming, arti ...

Share The Chinese Are Ashamed Of Their Chinese Names
2016-7-1 11:43
Many Chinese, especially those of the younger generation, are ashamed of their Chinese names, and when they have learned their ABC, they change their names to Western ones. That is a puzzle to many foreigners. Chinese parents go to great lengths to choose a name for their children; they consult the almanac and ensure that all the essential elements of earth, fire and water are in the names, because they want the best for their children, but little do their know that their childre ...

        HailChina!: You could take it further and give passengers tickets for speeding. I had to give this guy a lift to work for a while a while ago and I would often sp ...
        You example is rarely encountered, most passengers know their driver well, whether he has been drinking, many in fact go drinking with him, so no excuse for not knowing he is half drunk.
        Whatever the case, I support this law; it forces passengers to check on driver.
