Creative ways to get across
The dragon walk is a useful method one can employ to cross one of the crazy streets in UB. What it amounts to is making yourself visible to Mongolian drivers. The majority of them will not stop for people wanting to cross the street. At the same time one should be able to leap out of the way and/ or jog out of the way. Sometimes it is best to just wait for the light. Unfortunately some streets lacks lights. Some crosswalks lack crosswalks. Some lack both so the dragon can get you across. I am usually able to get drivers to stop, slow down, or at least alter their course. It is always a good thing to be mindful of where you're walking. Being aware of your surroundings can help you get across the street and you may not even need the dragon. For example, if you see a sudden lull in the traffic and know that you need to cross the street, you should quickly walk across. 20-40 cars may be coming all of whom will probably not slow down for you. I don't know what the Mongolian law is on this matter or if there is a statute but culturally Mongolian drivers have the right of way.
