Aside from the Great Wall, the resting place of the hundreds of preserved terracotta warriors is one of the most visited places in China. But although these warriors are numbering in the hundreds, none of them can harm you. It’s the road warriors in China that you must watch out for.
Right now, the number one cause of death in China for people under 45 years old is traffic accidents. This is the most dangerous place to drive and it doesn’t help that in this country, most drivers lack experience. In fact, many drivers don’t even have a license. It’s no wonder that the number of traffic fatalities in this country is one of the highest in the world.
In China, drivers run red lights. Bigger cars bully smaller cars on the road. It’s like there are no road rules at all. This can make your trip very dangerous unless you’re careful.
