Q: Did you hear about the Lexus driver killing cyclists?

Has anyone else heard about the 69 year old Lexus driver who pile into a group of cyclists and killed at least five of them in Shangdong. By all accounts he was driving down the wrong side of the road when it happened and says he suffers from vertigo, despite the law saying he should pass a medical every year at his age to retain his licence. I just read about it on ChinaSmack. apart from the senseless waste of life the thing that really made my blood boil where the comments from Chinese posters saying things like it was just an accident and that the cyclists, who were all members of a cycling club, should be more careful. What is it with some peoples mentality here. Just to educate some of the Chinese who have this attitude, If you kill anyone while driving down the wrong side of the road, or driving when you should have a medical certificate proving you are fit to drive is not an accident. In my country it is called death by dangerous driving and you are definitely looking at prison and loss of your licence.

 

It seems to me that people here just accept anything that happens, no public outcry or anything. No wonder nothing gets better here.

Crap like that happens all the time here.It would not surprise me at all if the families of the bike riders end up paying compensation to the Lexus owner.

chinese people sadly are trained to be pathetic losers. no backbone what so ever. this is a clear case of "i paid someone off to keep my licenses" if he knew he had vertigo then he should be thrown in jail. someone please explain to me how vertigo will make you blind to cyclists in front of you?

A:I'd say no, you don't need working permit to work for Chinese Co. remotely, i.e. by not residing in China.Best advice on that you'll get from your employer. https://www.china-briefing.com/news/china-foreigners-work-permit-application-and-renewal-recent-changes/ See this part: However, because a valid resident permit is one of the primary requirements for the renewal of a work permit, without a valid residence permit, expatriates stranded outside China may not be able to renew their work permits anymore. ... or in other words, if you don't reside in China, work permit is also not required. Some more details about Work visa requirements .. https://www.hongdaservice.com/blog/china-work-visa-requirements-what-you-may-not-know -- icnif77
