The only thing IMPRESSIVE is the utter lack of traffic.

yea thats actually a really good they they dont have any traffic. If the Chinese were as car dependent as the US there'd be a whole lot more air pollution. Too bad its not gonna be like that for long.

Thank goodness they aren't congested like those in Los Angeles. China isn't an automobile society like America but more like public transportation. Too bad in a few years it'll all change because China just became the world's no.2 car market after the US.

China to become second largest auto market



Satinet Claude, general manger of the French Citroen Automobile, said Saturday despite the fact that China's auto market in 2004 was not as good as it had been two years ago he still believed that China would become the second largest auto market in the long run.

Satinet said while releasing the company's annual report Citroen produced 78,000 cars in 2004 in cooperation with China whilst the production in 2003 was 104,000. The reason of the reduction was that the China auto market experienced sharp demand decrease after "blowout" in recent years. In addition, too many newcomers joined the competition, which led to fierce price cuts. To guarantee the value of its brand Citroen voluntarily limited its production.

Satinet said although China's auto market entered an adjustment period from the short-term point of view, in the long run, that is, in the foreseeable ten years, it would become the second largest auto market in the world. He believed after sometime China's auto market would complete restructuring and its growth would be steady and strong.

Citroen's official in charge of China affairs said to the reporter that those who felt most pressured in China's auto market in 2004 were foreign companies that entered China long ago. He said China's new regulations on auto industry would boost the healthy competition in the auto market. He was confident of the future of China's auto market.

rzj2000 请冷静些,作为大国公民应该有大国气魄。你发的照片(高速公路上的自行车和这些汽车)以及评论没有任何建设性的意义。任何过激的辩解都是自卑的表现。

I actually just returned from China a week or so ago, and have to say that traffic in Beijing is MUCH worse than Los Angeles. It actually had the worst traffic I've ever seen. Every highway around the city is stuck in virtual gridlock. It took us hours to go anywhere due to the stand-still traffic.

Consequently, the traffic coupled with the heavy industry in the country makes for the worst air pollution I've ever seen. Its so smoggy that sunny days actually seem cloudy... this picture is actually a sunny day:



I will say there is much less traffic on highways between cities, generally because these new highways are expensive to drive on, and there are transportation alternatives such as trains.
