Q: How come in China the stop light and pedestrian crosswalk do not mesh when crossing the road?

Most of the places that I have been in china the crosswalk and the stoplights for oncoming traffic does not mesh well. Whenever there is a green crosswalk light I automatically think go. However, the traffic tells me otherwise to stay and wait. Sometimes I just have to run across the street even if it is a red light because it doesn't matter at most places it will still be hard to cross the street. One place has an exception but most places are like that. What are possible answers that you can come up with?

 no one here respects any traffic laws. so it dosnt matter what order the lights go on. they can all turn green at the same time and would be the same.

Green lights, red lights...who cares? Go when it looks safe. Sometimes I feel like it's safer to cross during a red light, just saying.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
