Article 40 Beijing Traffic Code [Copy link] 中文

Rank: 4

Post time 2014-5-26 17:22:49 |Display all floors
Hi folks,

I was surfing through all the different websites looking at laws in various countries that appear to escape logic or benefit to society.

In several places I saw mention of this "Article 40 of the Beijing Traffic Code" that basically specified that,

'the driver of a powered vehicle may NOT stop at a pedestrain crossing. Failure to comply can result in a fine of 5 RMB or chastisment from an officer.'

?????

A question comes to my mind.

What is the purpose of having pedestrian crossings with lights and zebra white stirpes painted on the road for people to cross a busy road with, if the cars, trucks and buses are supposed to run them over?

What?

I must be missing something here. This must be wrong.

Can anyone correct this or confirm it and explain the logic and why it is so?




The day I stop learning will be the day I die. Maybe.

Contradictory to each other?

Drivers know both pedestrians and trafic code are equal important. Give precedence to pedestrian then code, so easy.

Hi, thanks for finding the real traffic code lionstar.

It is clear in the link above, all the laws, there is no such words as the websites with strange laws mention. Not in this case regards the article 40 story anyway.

It has shown that most the websites with these stories on them have copied them from each other without checking the validity of the story. After all, who wants to miss out on a good story, eh.

Well done, an internet rumour, shot down.

Free coffee for lionstar.
