Years back I was in a party talking to this very charming lady from Taiwan, several of us were discussing how bad LA drivers could be, she probably did not fully understood the conversation, instead told us we had not seen the worst, in Taiwan it was not unusual to see people got run over killed on the freeway and left there dead on the road side for days before relatives finally found the victims and took care of the situations from there.

We all looked at one another didn't know what to say.
Ha, that's what happened to one of my colleagues in Beijing. The taxi he was riding to work hit a woman crossing a red light. The taxi driver took the lifeless body on the side of the road, left some information for the police and then completed the ride. My colleague was in shock but the driver could not care less.
