So in a city of 37 million people and millions of cars one driver reversing into a dustbin makes a ...

Shanghai doesn't have 37 million people and Chinese people are bad drivers, parking included.

According to the Chinese Government Shanghai City has 25m and Shanghai Municipality 37m people, it depends how much you include and how many people without a Shanghai Hukou who live in Shanghai are counted.

As the population of the whole of Finland is only a little over 5 million you need to see the differences in things, the Finnish ways can not be used in China

Some Chinese drivers are bad but not all and you generalise, a thing made worse by the fact you have never driven in Shanghai

The main reason most Finnish or other advanced country's ways cannot be used in China is the lower education level of the people, low efficency and the amount of people. You are half right there.

Driving is something we Finns do very well, 3 Formula 1 and 7 Rally Car world Champions. How many does China have? I don't drive a car here because I don't have one and I rather sit in the back seat and let the driver deal with the traffic.

What it comes to the population of Shanghai you are wrong again. Shanghai has 24.1 million people, 14.25 million had perminent residence permit.

Shanghai's permanent population exceeds 24 million

The number of resident population in Shanghai exceeded 24.15 million by the end of last year, which is 347,200 more than in 2012, official statistics show.

According to figures released by the Shanghai Statistics Bureau on Wednesday, the number of inhabitants with a permanent residence permit was 14.25 million, while the number of migrant residents reached 9.9 million. Those figures combined form the city's resident population.

The number of migrant residents increased by 297,700 compared with 2012, accounting for 85.7 percent of the total increased population, but the growth has slowed compared with previous years.

The average life expectancy of the city's residents with a permanent residency permit reached 82.47, the statistics show.

Meanwhile, the city's economy ran smoothly last year, with the gross domestic product growing 7.7 percent year on year to 2.16 trillion yuan ($353.9 billion). By the end of last year, 3,633 enterprises had registered at the Shanghai Free Trade Zone since its launch in late September.

You miss out those not registered, you miss out the unregistered spouses of registered people, you miss out the people registered elsewhere but actually living in Shanghai, you miss out the foreigners on temporary residence permits not included in those figures. Look at some smaller schools to back up these figures, look at the people with no health cover for these figures, look at the strict Hukou laws to understand more.

You talk about the number of companies registered in the FTZ with no mention of the number of companies that are actually active, the number is much smaller.

You say Finns drive well because they drive rally cars, not a good example judging by the number of rally drivers that manage to roll their cars, much more than the average Shanghai driver. The reason you do not drive is you do not have a Chinese driving licence, your Finnish one is no good here.

Next time you cut and paste look deeper than what is there. Even you avatar is a picture of a Shanghai that does not exist

I don't miss or talk about anything, the article is made by China Daily and they quote Shanghai Statistic Bureau. But I guess you know this one better too.

An average Finn drives better than average Chinese or Brit. We don't stop driving in snow or rain. If you don't believe me ask Jeremy Clarkson or James May ;-)
