Who has the right of way on zebra crossings?[1]- Chinadaily.com.cn

I’m a foreigner so I’m chicken and I very quickly learnt that you when I intend to cross the road I look left, right, up, down, back and front and keep looking as I make the crossing if I want to stand a chance of reaching the other side in one piece. I do have to make an extra effort in China because the driving is not as predictable here. I have also learnt to read the body language of people, bike riders and cars because they subconsciously betray their intentions before they change direction even if they commonly don’t bother to use signals.

In the UK we tend to drive faster in straight lines so are predictable but in China there seems to be a compulsion to overtake even if it gains no advantage. As a result Chinese drivers have developed a spatial awareness but when you consistently drive like a snake an accident is inevitable because the other snakes become unpredictable.
