Yikes!!!! If I can take public transportation into NYC I do because I fear this happening there! Yep!

You should see the poor condition that most of the roads are in - a lot of drivers are zig-zag'ing just to avoid the biggest holes... and on top of that they drive like maniacs!

Even though your company may have arranged for a car+driver for you it doesnt' mean that the car is actually equipped with a seat belt.

Driver not used to that particular route + big holes in the road - seatbelt = concussion = close encounter with the Chinese hospital system (YIKES!!! Can't recommend anyone to copy that experience - it will scare your socks off) = grounded (no going home by airplane until cleared by a doctor... 1-2 weeks)
