CHINA-ACCIDENT-ROAD

Credit: MARK RALSTON / Staff
People cross the road during a road safety campaign as the government announces its first ever fine (USD 1.50) for jaywalking in Beijing on May 6, 2013. China's roads are highly dangerous, with traffic laws and safety widely flouted, and truck drivers typically overworked. Last year more than 62,000 people officially died in traffic accidents but a recent World Heath Organization report suggested the rate was more than double that.
