China is banning Bikes on main roads in Shanghai to make room for more cars. It's the begining of the end!

I thought the rest of the world would see the land use patterns in the US that resulted from building our world around the automobile, and try to avoid it. I guess not. Let's start exporting strip malls and sprawl to China!

Why can't others learn from our mistakes?

One of the reasons the "offcials" give for banning bikes is because of proported reckless disregard for the rules of the road.

So we can learn over here that the practice of running stop signs, failure to yield, or moving against the flow of traffic can get you banned from the street altogther.
