NBC's Today Show tells us this morning China's getting an extra 2,000 cars per day on city streets as the Socialist republic becomes more and more like the United States every day. One other problem they face similar to us? Nobody knows how to drive. As you'd expect it's causing 300 to 600 people being killed each day on the roadways of the world's most populous country. So what's the People's Republic to do? The thing we wish they'd mandate in Manhattan and here in some suburbs of Metro Detroit — mandatory driver's training. The requirement, along with increased enforcement of traffic violations is causing traffic deaths to drop a whole 10%. The effort, however, is only helping NBC's David Gregory 5% in his attempt to discern the differences between the People's Republic of China and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
