Traffic police in Shanghai developed a type of human "on/off" switch to help pedestrians safely cross the streets during Golden Week. At one intersection 10 policemen separately stood along the sidewalk, on both sides of the road when the red light was on, so pedestrians would remain separated from the passing motor vehicles. Once the light turned green, two teams of police moved to the middle of the street forming human "walls" on either side of the zebra crossings, so pedestrians could cross the street safely. Shanghai received about 3.8 million visitors on the third day of the National Day holiday, Shanghai Morining Post reported. Some newspaper also questioned the necessity.
