When I first heard this shocking story, I hoped in my heart that it was just a dirty rumor circulating on the internet. Believe me, I wanted it so bad to be untrue but apparently and unfortunately, it seems like it is.
Based on the information gathered by Geoffrey Saint, it looks like there is an unwritten rule among Chinese drivers who have accidentally hit pedestrians – it is better to run the person over and k*** them instead of allowing them to live.
I know that sounds really inhumane but it is an accepted behavior in the country. Numerous incidents caught on security cameras confirm that many drivers on the road subscribe to that mindset.
In China, some drivers believe it is better to hit and k*** than to hit and injure.
Unbelievably, there is even an adage in the Chinese language that, when translated to English, literally says “it is better to hit and k*** than to hit and injure.”
It’s really morally wrong no matter how you look at it but the drivers have a reason behind this horrific attitude. In fact, the flawed logic is based on an existing law.
Based on Chinese law, k****** will cost lesser for the driver in the long run.
Chinese law requires that drivers be made liable for the injured pedestrian’s health care not only for the vehicular accident but for the rest of that person’s life. This means the total expenses can possibly rack up to millions, depending on the gravity of the injury.
However, if the pedestrian is dead, the driver will only be mandated to give a one-time payment amounting to $30,000 up to $50,000.
To me, that sounds like one of the most heartless laws ever implemented by man.
Security camera videos confirm that this ruthless practice is really happening in China.
According to Geoffrey Saint:
“Hit-to-k*** cases continue, and hit-to-k*** drivers regularly escape serious punishment. In January a woman was caught on video repeatedly driving over an old man who had slipped in the snow. In April a school bus driver in Shuangcheng was accused of driving over a 5-year-old girl again and again. In May a security camera filmed a truck driver running over a young boy four times; the driver claimed that he had never noticed the child.”
I don’t know how anyone could be heartless enough to k*** someone in cold blood just like that. These drivers are basically getting away with m*****!
To anyone guilty of this, better hope and pray that your children or loved ones do not fall victim to this ruthless practice. Because in case they get hit by another vehicle, you know you’re never seeing them again.
Karma can be c****.
