In April, 2018, aninternational students of our universityfrom Western Asia (class of 2017)was riding an electric bicycle on a motorway and knocked a woman across the road, causing the fracture of thiswoman. The student paid about 200000 RMB for the medical expenses for the woman. At the beginning of May,2018, anAfrican studentstudying at our university(class of 2017) wasriding an electric bicycleand was knocked down by a three-wheeled electric bicycle. He was hospitalized for two weeks with serious injury and the medical cost was about 60000 RMB. In June, 2018, anAfrican student of our university(class of 2016)accidentally hit the roadside stonewhen riding a shared bike. It caused a seriousinjury, with a medical fee of nearly 10000 RMB.
