BEIJING-- Nearly 56 percent of Chinese believe that traffic order got even worse after tightened traffic regulations were adopted at the beginning of 2013, suggest poll results released on Tuesday.

About 26.8 percent of the respondents considered traffic order has been somewhat improved while 14.2 percent see no changes after the strict enforcement of traffic regulations, according to the poll conducted by the China Youth Daily, a national newspaper.

A total of 45,358 respondents were interviewed for the poll, among whom 50.2 percent live in second- or third-tier cities and 13.5 in first-tier cities, with the rest from county-level areas or the countryside.

About 94.2 percent said it's common to see violations by pedestrians on the road, including running red lights and crossing roads without the use of crosswalks, showed the poll.

Some 17.7 percent of the respondents think lax law enforcement is the leading cause for traffic violations, while 14.8 percent believe it has to do with the public's lack of awareness about following rules.
