Be very careful driving in Belgium!!

This is wonderful.  Here is an excerpt of an article published on the China Daily newspaper website today.  The article is titled “Why I am afraid of driving” and details the correspondents fears of driving in Bejing.  However within the article is the following:

It’s true countries with higher GDP will invest more in road safety and their motorists will have greater risk aversion. But wealth is not everything, because other factors, such as corruption, also play a part in driver behavior.

For example, Belgium has been found to have a much worse traffic-death rate than equally rich Netherlands, because it is “more corrupt and corruption reduces respect for the law.”
