Many HK'ers like to be called Chinese but they seem to have a lot of misunderstanding with the PRC

Also, Hong Kong's European-based road system needs to change and adapt to mainland China's.

The cost to do that would bankrupt China so will never happen

Mainland China's road system (including the road mapping) is also European-based. Hong kong based its system more on england, China more on the German system. You also have a very similar situation in the legal area: Chinese laws are based on the German legal system, while Hong kong based its laws on the English system.

I don't think either party should adapt the other's system - better try to combine the advantages of both systems somehow (except for the question which side of the road one should drive on - there must be a clear decision here, or traffic would get dangerous )
