can you provide a source? Talk about your experience? Anything more than just a one line sentence?

comment Is it true you must not stop at Red lights in South Africa while driving?
@Calchas yeah, I considered that, but taht's not what the question asked. "is it true you must not stop" - no, that's not true. Is it true sometimes people don't stop - sure, that's true occasionally, in times of great stress/need/fear for safety. (source: lived in South Africa for 13 years)

As soon as the WC was over, the hostels suddenly became a lot more acecssible. If you are in the Samesun, I'm there on the 16th :)

I was trying to do s o for vancouver a couple of weeks ago, and it was almost impossible. Turns out it was the football (womens) world cup final. Perhaps there's another event on the 17th that may cause you problems.

I've edited it to try and help a bit to show you what I mean. I suspect your other questions could do with similar efforts. Hope that helps!

comment Will the average tourist encounter problems on the street in Cape Town?
And I totally see why you're comparing it to other how safe ones, but it's generally not a great idea to compare to historical questions as the community has changed over time, and old questions are kept in for 'historical' purposes. The help center may have been updated since they were asked.

@Dan if you look at the help center and adjust your question to meet the criteria in there (subjective is generally frowned upon), then your question automatically goes into the review-to-reopen queue. However if it's still subjective (your title still says 'how safe' and your question still says 'how likely' - it's not like we can give a percentage!), then people are likely to vote no to reopen.

No. A red light means stop.

comment In China airports, is passport needed on ticket?
I've never seen a passport number on a ticket (some airlines request it, but it's not on the ticket). I've flown in/out of China and the US.
