I don't talk to communists, thank you very much. Don't bother talking to me again.

Not that I have any political allegiances but I fail to see what politics has to do with China's road safety.

It doesn't need to be changed at all. It works perfectly well in other countries. What needs to be ...

Perhaps it works perfectly well in other countries because they have been driving longer, have better enforcement of traffic law, and penalties that actually hurt.

The countdown on the traffic lights appears to work in calming drivers down and that is a good thing. Removing the option to turn right against the lights simplifies the procedure and will reduce deaths on pedestrian crossings significantly because there will be no doubt who "owns the road" when pedestrians are told to cross.

ANYTHING that enforces traffic laws is a good thing. Sending out flag waving, whistle blowing traffic controllers may help but if they were handing out fixed on the spot fines it would be more effective. Think of it like training a dog or a child - if you ignore bad behaviour you send the signal that the behaviour is acceptable and that is what has happened in China.

Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

That Chinese blood must be diluted a bit thin then if you value your life.
