if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

I noticed, I was hit by a police motorcycle as I was walking on the footpath in Shenzhen

Did u also notice policemen on motorcycles riding against the flow of traffic? Scary, what the law enforcers do; they break the very law they are supposed to enforce.No wonder the Chinese don't respect the law, because even the police don't respect it!

I have seen it quite often. Open your eyes when you cross the road, for you might be run over by a police motorcycle from from the direction least expected, ie the opposite direction!

automatic gear or manual gear?....automatic gear is very easy, you don't need to go to school for it ...

Sorry but can you repeat that? Maybe driving an automatic is easier but do you really think you do not need lessons to drive a car without gears?

Most Chinese cities have very good efficient and cheap public transport systems, the envy of cities  ...

In many ways you are correct, however there are some of us that DO need to drive in China.

I regularly have to visit factories that are well off the beaten track and public transport is not viable for such trips
