That's because they are supposedly rumble strips (supposedly because this is China after all).

It's China. They could care less. Useless vermin...

actually hmmwv is right. I am not sure how it works outside China, but for anyone who wants to pass the written test in China, he/she is required to know that. you can also see the sign in that picture indicating the end point of 100m.

and here are the rumble strips shown in jiangwho's post . (not supposedly, they actually work)

Here you see how far is the distance from 0M to 100M.

And the screen below shows that the bus registration number of PD8818 which illegally changed its lane caught on the camera.

Yes there are point to point average speed cameras. There are also cameras that detect large vehicles illegally in the fast lane, as is shown by the display board that "豫PD8818 coach bus have been caught in the express lane".

Something is wrong with the exit numbers. I have read on Wikipedia that they can be only up to 3 digits, so when the expressway reaches km 1000 the exit numbers resets back to 0 and starts over. Those 4 digit exit numbers sohuldn't be there.

Anyway, that exit 2444 (That should be exit 444 IMO) is the highest one I've seen. I thought that exit 1168 on Spanish A-7 was the highest exit number in the world...

BTW, what number would have the last exit of G30 just before KZ border? Something like 4280?

No, the exit numbers are correct, for the radial highways from Beijing, the exit number is the number of kilometers from Beijing

nice find, I didn't even notice that.

Anyway, G324 is not part of the national trunk highway system (NTHS), and thus has different exit numbering system. Notice the highway in that picture has three digits (G324, comparable to highways such as US-66 in USA), while the NTHS (similar to the interstate in USA) consists of expressways numbered single digit(G1-G9 from Beijing), double digits(other trunk expressways) and four digits (city ring road). So the wiki note for NTHS is correct, and the exit number 2444 is also ok.

For comparison, you can see G324 has a different color than G0401(the white dots above G0401 are "国家高速", the Chinese characters for NHTS)

For G30 in Xinjiang, I happen to come across this picture

for national trunk highway system, the exit number only uses the last three digits of the distance.

It's awesome that the camera will detect that motor coach in the passing lane, and then display its offense and license plate number on the big display. LOL. It's like saying "Shame on you, driver!"

That was some smart idea! I wonder if it's self-sustaining?
