China leads World in Traffic Deaths

Any driver or passenger on China's roads will see that traffic rules are systematically broken.  The result is that China leads the world in traffic deaths since 1987.   Last year, 81,000 people died on China's roads according to the China Automotive Technology Research Center (CATRC).  

After the 2008 Beijing Olympics and Space launches, the world community awoke to China's concrete aspiration to become the world's next super power.  But to accomplish this feat, the citizens of the country will need to develop respect for the regulatory laws that can enable world-class development.  Countries whose citizens respect intellectual property rights, uphold workers safety and obey civil regulations have shown sustained growth that have withstood the economic downturns of time.
