The following will certainly be a shocking piece of information – Chinese drivers are known for intentionally killing the people that they hit accidentally.
There is even a Chinese saying for this – It is better to hit to kill than to hit and injure.
When a person is hit by a driver, the driver will run over the victim in order to kill them for sure.
The explanation for this lies in the China’s incentive system. If a person is killed, the consequences are lessened or even nonexistent. On the other hand, if a person is wounded or injured and survives, the driver has to pay for that for the rest of the victim’s life.
In case the victim dies, the driver has to pay damages to the family, but only once.
This story is backed by many existing surveillance videos. Drivers run over the victim a few times in order to make sure that their victim is dead.
On one occasion, a driver hit a 2-year-old girl. A woman was behind the wheel. The driver was warned by the girl’s grandmother of her actions. Despite that, she decided to run over the girl’s body a few times more.
The woman offered compensation to the girl’s grandmother, saying that they were rich and asking her to say that the driver’s husband was the one who drove the car.
