China In May 2010: Finally, The Official Word

I know you are tired of China sales numbers. Just for the record: The final, official tally of all passenger vehicles sold in China in May stands at 1.04m units, up 26 percent from last year, says the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) via Gasgoo. The CAAM has the last word. Total vehicle sales hit 1.44m units, up 28.8 percent, says the Straits Times. With these numbers, we declare the TTAC patent-pending Growth-o-Meter as broken. Wuling’s lousy may numbers did it in. As a make-good, another round of the very best of Chinese traffic accidents. In color!

    Talk about driver ineptitude! Guess we now know the reason behind those incredible sales growth numbers... BTW, my favorite one is the very last one!

    China has lots of freeways, right? Let's see some high-speed chases and crashes. I'm seeing a big market for COPS: High-Speed Chases in China!

    the title of the video is in Japanese, it says traffic accident video collection in Chinese schools. From the look the intersection it does look like roads in side schools. Not school zone but schools. so those are private road. Other then that it didn't specify where. from the trees you can tell its not from the south, cause its like tropics there.
