New effort targets drivers who endanger pedestrians
ed to deter illegal driving behaviors.
In addition, the police will organize public information activities to remind drivers about giving way to pedestrians and help them consciously obey the rules. The authorities will also improve traffic lights and monitoring of both vehicles and pedestrians.
He Zhiqiang, a news reporter at a television station in Wuhan, said: “I am in full support of the effort, which makes human life the priority and reflects a humanitarian approach to traffic management.”
Liu Zhicheng, a 67-year-old retired worker in Jilin, had a different perspective: “I think it’s impractical, because many pedestrians break the traffic rules to go across roads. They walk when the red lights are on. So it’s no wonder the drivers won’t let them go.”
Veterinarians adjust the fit of an artificial 3-D printed beak on a male red-crowned crane in Hongshan Forest Zoo in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, on Wednesday. The crane lost half its upper beak during a fight over a female, resulting in difficulties in eating and courting.
