Driving on the sidewalk in China
This is part of ireport's "Life in China" series. This video was taken in Shanghai. Driving on the sidewalk is commonplace because there's absolutely no traffic enforcement to speak of. It goes without saying that accidents do occur.
In places were sidewalks are much larger, I've seen cars drive on the sidewalks too. I even see cars, scooters and motorcycles drive the wrong way on roads -- all in an effort to take shortcuts and/or beat traffic going the other way.
