I doubt that the traffic will be going very fast, and I'm sure that they're screwed to the ground.

Thats an older highway , this is a new Highway. Newer Highways and Roads don't have any excuses not to have proper barrier.

Barrier can be added easily, just haul in the concrete modules and line them up. I agree that solid barriers are necessary to prevent cars from crashing into the oncoming traffic, even though the speed of cars on those city streets aren't fast at all.

Natural selection and more severe/strict prosecutions (for DUI for example).

I remembered at least ten years ago it's more difficult to get a license in China than in the US. You have to be able to drive manual transmission and perform that turn and back into garage test. It's all changed now and everybody is driving.

I'm always amazed you don't have to in the US.

If you can't drive a manual, you can't really drive, imo.

I like the G7 plans... It appears that now instead of joining G6 just after enter Hebei it continues to Datong in Shanxi province. Then I don't know the routing... Maybe it will go to Hohhot for join G6.
But the interesting part is the one from Bayannur to Hami. They will build a motorway through the middle of nothing! Only the towns of Ejinaqi and Mazongshan are in the route. I think there will be sections of 100+ km without any exit.

barriers like that are used in the UK aswell. None on full size motorways but just larger urban boulevards instead. The cars don't get over 30-40Mph anyway on roads like that...

Quite a bit. There are numbered expressways around Shanghai, two ring roads and a number of elevated roads;

* South-North Elevated Road: 22 km
* Yan'An Elevated Road: 14 km
* Yixian Elevated Road: 10 km
* Humin Elevated Road: 8 km
* Huaxia Elevated Road: 14 km

Besides these, portions of the Middle and Inner Ring Roads are also elevated.
