I read this article on some blog on the net...what do u guys think...i personally think the article is nonsense


I simply tell them the truth. I remind them that Chinese are not as familiar with automobiles, and driving, as we Americans are. We were introduced to cars on the ride home from the hospital. The journey from the car-seat, to the back seat, to shotgun, to the driver’s seat takes about seventeen years. So, by the time we’re ready to drive, we’re ready to drive.

Chinese don’t have this opportunity to learn driving through osmosis. Their main modes of transportation are bicycles and motorcycles, for which the rules of the road are quite different.

We take our driving skills for granted, The Chinese are still learning., not only in America, but also in China. Turns out that their driving record in China is as bad as their driving reputation in America ...
Although they have far less automobiles than does America, their death rate per 1000 cars is 8 times that of the American rate. It is noted that although road conditions do play a role, roughly seventy-five percent of these deaths are the result of driver error.

It takes time to learn the automobile and it’s rules. I remember after the war when blacks could first afford automobiles enmasse, folks used to do racial jokes about our driving skills. Eventually we got over it and so did they.

Drive defensively and stop bad-mouthing Chinese drivers.
