I am a strong supporter of pedestrian rights; where is the pedestrian liberation movement that I ...

'What I am trying to say is this: the pedestrians must know the traffic rules, and the motorists must know traffic rules even better.'

What are you talking about? They all know the rules, but they ignore them all; that is the Chinese attitude towards their nation's rules and regulations and the law!  The government is trying to get them to obey the law, but that is an uphill task!

Does the person with the most photos win a prize?

It wouldn't have any impact on behavior unless there was a STIFF fine with it... and the police were relentless in enforcing it.  It may last a day or two before people are jaywalking en mass again.  All it takes is for 2 or 3 people to step off the curb to start crossing before the entire group joins in closely behind.

I don't think it's difficult at all.

You must hurt them badly.
With a big fine.
Double or triple cops at crossing and film stray walkers; fine them on the spot.

In one months time, word gone around and we'll have the most traffic law abiding citizen and they themselves will laugh about the silly old habits.   

And by the way:
Unable to pay the fines?
The one time I was stopped for speeding by a gendarme on his motorbike, he escorted me all the way to the nearest cash machine so I could pay up there and then!
Noooo problem at all.

SWITZERLAND
Police rigorously enforce the limits on all roads, and breaking them by any margin is
Not officially tolerated.
Fines generally vary from 14 to 540 euros ( 10- 375) but can
shoot up to 1500 euros ( 1040) for just 25km/h over the limit in towns or 35km/h (21mph)over on the motorway. They may take your licence if you're unable to pay.
HOLLAND:
The Police have very fast Volvos, and if they see you speeding they re likely to sit back and follow you until you have to stop to fill-up. At that point, you ll get a fine ranging from 28 to 400 Euros ( 20 - 280). If you ve been breaking the limit at more than 50km/h (31mph), the fine goes up to 670 Euros ( 460) and they can seize your bike.

While in Ireland, speed limit signs just changed from mph to km/h, and the police won t be interested in the excuse that I did' t know.

Shenzhen traffic police offers jaywalkers a choice of either paying 50 yuan fine, or don a blazer and stand at road junctions to stop jaywalker, for twenty minutes!  Which would you choose?
