    I've forgotten, what is worth more points, hitting a couple on a scooter or running over a guy on a bicycle? I'd deduct points for hitting the guy standing still in the road. Where's the challenge.

    I see the neurosurgeons lobby has successfully thwarted the bike helmet industry from getting a toe hold in the Peoples Republic.

    I think the one hit and run can be explained by the Avis sticker in the window and the young American executive behind the wheel.



    And yes, Stallone and Carradine are much funnier in German, you swine...

    So they don't teach "Look both ways before crossing" as a form of population control? (They're probably just listening to iPods actually )

    holy cow, with all the new tech coming from that way you'd think they be visionaries in stop light technology.

    I've been to Beijing and Shanghi, and I can tell you, I would never want to drive OR ride a bike in either city. I never saw an accident, but neither has respect for the other.

    You want to see no traffic rules, head to India. The direction of traffic is determined by the volume of cars traveling in one direction and lights only work if there is a policeman overseeing the intersection. And livestock has the right of way. Several times we had to wait for the water buffalo to get out of the way before we could get moving when I was there last year. While in Hyderabad, I don't think I ever saw any lane lines either. Or a stop sign. Or orange cones. Madness, for the most part. Riding on the back of a scooter was a bit death-defying as well.

    I didn't see anyone wearing helmets but I think what bothered me the most were the pedestrians "strolling" through the intersections......especially the ladies with the kids......jeesh, get the f@ck outta the street!!

    Costa Rica was a trip. Watching as motorcyclists would pull out and drive towards oncoming traffic than swerve back into the correct lane. Looking for pedestrians or cars before pulling out was optional. Running across the freeway to get to the mall was accepted and expected. And the ladies... ooh la la.
