Your post is really frivolous, it shows your lack of understanding of Chinese motorists mentality.  They respond to one thing only, stiff penalties!  The facilities for separation of motorists from pedestrians are already there, problem is, motorists dont respect them and even encroach on them.  They drive on, and park on, pedestrian walkways!  They dont give way to pedestrians at zebra crossings!  They drive along emergency section of highways, or road shoulders.  Why are you crowing about separaton?

OMG!!!  I wish I could have snapped a picture of what I seen today. I was driving to work, when I saw it. There was about five police officers pulling over vehicles. Many were pulled to the side of the road. What the reason for them being pulled over, that I don't know. What I do know is the police were doing there job. Kudos to those officers for making the roads a bit safer. Thank you!!!
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!

My good Mr Pin and Pun,

Ha, from English teacher to town planner, and not a good one at that.  The facilities are all there. The problem is the Chinese mentality of not obeying the law, both motorists and pedestrians are at fault.
And no regime punishes for retribution, its for deterrence!
