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:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
