I guess because they are annoying, ignore traffic rules and cause danger.

The thing is, every year i go back Shanghai, i find less and less people riding scooters or bikes, this is probably the result of the growing subway system.

On top of being dangerous to both their riders and pedestrians motor scooters also have poor emission standard due to its engine design. Most people in Shanghai ride electric scooters and bikes nowadays though.

Is the plot in the background the one next next to Jinmao? Or is that going to be another skyscraper?

True. Never seen a ***** like that. But maybe he uses one that is shaped like that? Then fair enough.

Its next to Jinmao. Something going on there but not a skyscraper I think. Also some work going on at the bottle opener. Not just the pedestrian overpass.
