Yang Lijun, 21, fell into a 6-meter-deep hole in Changsha, Hunan province, and never came back. A security guard died due to land collapse in Shenzhen. The most familiar roads hide traps; a simplest walk can be dangerous. We should not ignore that sense of security, which is still the most basic needs of public, in the increasingly bustling cities. We hope that one day the roads will stop swallowing lives.
