Traffic, Beijing: 21 reviews and 20 photos
Pedestrians are lowest on the food chain on the streets of Beijing. You must watch out for everything. After pedestrians come bikes, then cars, then cabs and finally buses. Cabs stop for no one with the exception of buses. A friend of mine told me that his cab hit a guy on a bike. Most cars, especially cabs, will honk to let you know that they're coming. This is a warning to get out of the way. The will most likely not stop or even slow down. Even ifit seems that you have th righ of way as a pedestian a cab will just move on in. You will quickly learn how and when to cross the streets in Beijing. I'm amazed that I saw no accidents with cars, bikes or pedestrians when I was there.
