at this time of day damage is sure to happen

Students make their way home along a busy "backstreet" in the Qiaodong district

According to the WHO (World Health Organization) 600 people die per day in car accidents and 45000 are injured on the roads in China. Ranking the country top in the world for both the death toll and the death rate.

In a country where most of the people have to walk or use a bicycle or motorcycle because they cannot afford a private car, the increasingly busy roads will make them more vulnerable to death or injury. The figure is accelerating by 10 per cent every year.
