Bad? Boys on Bikes, Xin Tian Di
I don’t know what it is about this intersection (Fuxing Road and Danshui Road), but I always see the craziest, coolest Chinese people around here. I just posted about “Balloon Bandits” running a red light at this crossing, and now here we have some more questionable bike behavior rounding the corner… I’m sure I’ve seen more people running red lights than adolescents standing on the back of their friend’s ride, so I’m not quite convinced that the local authorities condone this type of transportation but at the very least it looks fun (read: slightly dangerous but not as risky as running a red light in Shanghai).
But come to think of it, I’m pretty sure I ran this red light because they did and I wanted these pictures… so I’m not in a position to reprimand either these bad? biker boys or the balloon bandits, and I wouldn’t want to anyway because Chinese people doing nutty things on bikes make for good pictures (and video).
