It is difficult to walk along Beijing streets for want of habit (though after other Chinese cities, it seems easy - the other way round). It is important to memorise that vehicles moving along the nearest to the bicycle lane have the right to ignore the red light for making a right turn. And Chinese drivers are not in favor of slowing down before making a turn. And when at the cross-roads you have already crossed most of the road and only one vehicle lane remained (before the bicycle lane) suddenly a taxi or a bus may tear along at you. One should be very cautious!

Even after you have crossed all roads and lanes and stepped on the pavement, still be on your guard — cyclists and scooters may rush along the pavement as well.
