The number of drivers on the roads in China has increased immensely in recent years. In 2009 there were 138,87 million licensed drivers. Currently, the exact number is hard to count because China recently passed initiatives to enhance sales in the automobile industry which have been effective. Auto sales in China, according to an article published in The Wall Street Journal, increased 56% this year in March.
China is obviously a heavily populated nation, and while it would make sense that they would have the highest demand for automobiles there is roughly one car for every 120 people. In a population of almost 1.4 billion, that translates to approximately 11,666,000 automobiles on China’s roads (Washington Post, 2008).
However, cars are not the only polluting forms of transportation; to include busses, motorbikes, and other motorized vehicles would increase that previous figure to 168.03 milion motor vehicles on the roads of China.
I can only hope I am never trapped in Chinese rush hour…
