CELL PHONES A DANGER WHILE DRIVING, SOME CHINESE SAY


CHINA – As China’s economy grows and its people enjoy an expanding consumer culture, citizens are expressing concerns about the related hazards of some products, including – but not limited to – the ubiquitous cellphone. While most Chinese would never worry over something as trivial as public safety, there is a small section of the public who seem to believe that operating a vehicle, whether equipped with one, two, three, or four wheels, actually demands the driver’s attention, and are suggesting to officials that restrictions be imposed on cellphone use. The campaign has gathered little support, however, and some critics argue that their are more dangerous distractions for drivers, such as pedestrians in the passing lane (also known as the sidewalk) and the neck injury inducing presence of white-skinned foreigners.

    chinese like to list things in order, for example, who score the highest on a test, who came second, third and so on.. so you shouldn’t feel proud if you are second place finish. the unexpected act of a pedestrian rushing onto the car lane is unforeseeable, but we can prevent automobile accident by having the drivers on the lookout for any unusual movements and that would require the drivers not talking nonchalantly on their phone.
