You should STOP and proceed with caution slowly.
Here ppl accelerate, get outta my way.
Cops here don't carry guns and even if they were in an intersection NOBODY would obey them.
I'll bet they would even get run down.
I'm just here for the money

The rule works in the USA without any problems.  In China the drivers are stupid and do not care about rules.

The red light is there but one is supposed to ignore it if turning right. I did not know, during my first visit to the US, so I stopped and waited. Then this irate big yank came over and told me to go or else he was going to push me out of the way with his pickup truck. There was no room for bravery, that bloke must have been 6ft 6'' and over 20st.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

The rule is your are supposed to stop, look to see if a vehicle is coming, and then turn right if safe.  Simple rule.

This is because motor vehicles turning RIGHT can cruise on and hoot their way through crowds of pedestrians on the zebra crossing.

What a daft idea that China's motorists should be allowed to go through pedestrian traffic when all others have to stop for a red light!

I've passed the driving test in China and remember the rule which says you can turn right at a red light ONLY IF you do not come out in front of moving traffic with the green light or if there are pedestrians on the crossing. Chinese road rules are fine,, basically exactly the same as almost anywhere else in the world, it's just that enforcement of the rules is pitifully weak.

Don't be stupid. The rule in the US is right on red after stopping. You have to stop, then turn. And you always have to yield to pedestrians.
