Another fix, since the starting point is spelt Duyun, not Douyun (Anyway, Google has it as Qiannan Buyizu Miaozu), and anyway I call G7611 the Duyun-Shangri-La expressway. I like how Baidu has labelled this section, '66 expressway' . A random fact: Liupanshui is a portmanteau of Liuzhi, Pan county and Shuicheng, the three counties (Well, actually Liuzhi is the only 'special district' of China) that make up the prefecture.

Few things:
- What kind of car do you drive? Is it rather large? Given that you have to do 3/5-point-turns in the parking garage
- What kind of dashcam is that and also what kind of software did you use for that speedometer?
- Looks like lane discipline is unheard of in China, also the concept of a 'lane' seems to be not known by everyone
- About halfway in: are other people driving so slow or are you going over the posted speed limit?
- Fun to see that taxi drivers are worldwide consistent in driving like idiots
- I love that sign at 17:47 http://i.imgur.com/v366pPp.png

That is the worst driving I have seen in awhile. You would not only lose your license in the USA but go to jail for reckless driving and get a very large fine. China should hire millions of police officers and start enforcing road rules if it ever plans to reduce road accidents.

The driver of this car needs to go to jail then be forced to pass a real driver test before they are ever allowed on the road. In fact, all drivers should be forced to take a driver test again if this driver represents the average driver.

This reckless driving irritates me. The selfish disrespect for road rules just to save time kills people. This attitude pisses me off immensely.

China is still a developing country, you can't expect Western-like driving. Right now, they have problems more important that road safety. But they'll eventually catch up, like other countryes have.

Street View Animation from Zhamo to Medog in Tibet

More than 11 thousand individual frames make up this zippy 115 km trip.

Image Date: November 25–27, 2013

Zhamo–Medog Highway opened on October 31, 2013. Medog was the last county-level town without road access to the outside world. For photos, see my earlier posts on page 133/134.

What does development of a country have to with courtesy and skill? If the drivers are rude to the point of being reckless, then revoke their driving privileges; if the drivers lack skill, then force retraining. Driving is NOT a right, its a privilege.

I disagree with your premise. If china can spend $600 billion on building roads then they can spend money on making them safe.

China is a very big country, so it has a powerful economy, but it's poor in a GDP-per-capita scale. This means that they have a lot of expressways, but they are not that many if you divide them by the population they serve. Law enforcement is very expensive and China is not rich enough to afford it yet -the only thing they've done (as it can be seen in the videos) is putting up speed cameras, which look pretty useless since drivers just brake when they see it and then they speed up again.

I was in China recently. I have four videos here of our drive from Beijing Capital International Airport towards first a far outer suburb and then towards the city centre. I apologise for the bad videos, but they're all I have. We were all talking in the car (was my father-in-law, who is a native Beijinger driving), so I just stuck any old music over the top. Hope you don't mind too much.


Towards the suburb:







Towards the city centre:

Could you tell me how this video is made? I would like to make one for the Yunnan-Tibet Highway.

Yunnan–Tibet already made. 10 GB to upload. Be patient.

But they can afford to spend billions to monitorate the internet traffic, censore Facebook, political websites, porn, and to prosecute those who attempt to violate the system. So that crazy regime is more concerned about someone who googles "free Tibet" instead about someone who drives in a suicidal\homicidal manner. There's simply no excuse for that.

Yet another China hater? It is no worse than someone who crashes a Lamborghini Huracan at more than 300 km/h. Do not be double standard. Thanks.

Facebook is dangerous. It is like giving out our complete population data to the United States, which sees us as their enemy. If I was the government, I would block it anyway. Google is rude. They should be punished for their attitude. The United States is not friendly to Chinese companies doing business over there either.
