To name just a few cases from these entries, in Harbin city in October 2003, a victim was crushed and dragged to death by a BMW and another 12 injured. In Changsha city in 2004, a female driver injured seven with a BMW in March and another seven with a Mercedes-Benz in July. In Yiwu in 2005, a deputy of the Municipal People’s Congress drove a BMW while drunk and beat up intervening police officers. In Wenzhou in 2006, a BMW driver caused five accidents in just an hour. In Beijing in 2007, a 17-year-old hit-and-run driver showed not a single trace of repentance when caught. Last year, there were more than a dozen cases of traffic accidents reported, including deadly ones, caused by Bao Ma sedans.

  1. It’s possible that these obviously wealthy drivers paid someone else to take the driver’s licence test for them. Of course the driving laws are somewhat less that rational…

      Hey! long time no see. As you lived here you have a much better handle on the reality of this place. Most would never understand, but I am in agreement!
