Flipper bridge

In mainland China people drive on the right side of the road. In Hong Kong people drive on the left side of the road. When traveling between the two, how to stop them from crashing into each other?

Leave it to the Dutch, who've come up with a bridge design that allows people to depart Hong Kong driving on the left side of the road and enter mainland China driving on the right side of the road, and vice versa.
