Traffic violations crackdown in Wuhan

Those who have violated traffic regulations when driving or crossing roads will be reported to their employers or the communities in which they live in Wuhan, capital of Central China's Hubei province.

Other measures for enforcing traffic management issued by the city's chengguan, or urban management bureau, on Wednesday include adding 2,000 video cameras across the city, upgrading the monitoring system and speeding up construction of more temporary parking lots for taxis, Chutian Metropolis Daily reported.

The urban management bureau could not be reached by telephone on Thursday afternoon.

"Our department sent us a notice today, asking us to strictly follow traffic regulations in the next few days, and saying violations will be recorded by cameras and the information sent to the department," a government employee in Wuhan, who wished to remain anonymous, said on Thursday.

According to the notice, a high-level team will visit Wuhan in plainclothes from Aug 26 to 31 to see if Wuhan is qualified to be called a “civilized city”, a title sought after by many Chinese cities.

"I think this is a good regulation because many people don’t obey traffic rules, and such a measure is needed to effectively maintain good order," said a netizen named Cartin.

"Although the rule could make people more cautious about traffic violations, I doubt whether it will be carried out effectively. Enforcement takes much time and manpower," said Tian Jingwen, a student in Wuhan.
