Wednesday/ we are not afraid

Here’s a cell phone picture that captured a moment in our daily commute.   The light is amber but that still leaves plenty of time for everyone to get across! : car, big bus, small bus (ours) and four cyclists.  The big bus is overtaking the car (probably honked a move over! at it), and the car is driving on the shoulder.   Our bus is honking a On your left, watch out! at the cyclists.  One would think the cyclists would go in single file, but then that is not a very social way of cycling.

While on the subject of traffic : the bottom picture is of the type of taxi scooter in Shanghai that I took on Saturday for a short ride to the hotel.   I found out that they are actually illegal.  The drivers are fined but I suppose there are too many of them to make them go away completely.
