Jiangsu traffic police make online broadcast about law enforcement

(People's Daily Online)    17:19, August 16, 2016

On Monday, Aug. 15, traffic police in eastern China's Jiangsu province made an online broadcast explaining various aspects of their law enforcement process. The process applies to cities all over Jiangsu, including Nanjing, Xuzhou and Yangzhou, thepaper.cn reported. A total of 210,000 people tuned in for the one-hour broadcast.

The police said that their main goal in planning the broadcast was to help improve public awareness about traffic safety. According to recent data, two of the most common traffic violations carried out by non-motorized vehicles are occupying emergency lanes and running red lights. An officer with the Traffic Police Headquarters of the Jiangsu Provincial Public Security Department said that non-motorized vehicles running red lights led to 47 deaths in the first half of this year.

The rapid increase of electric bicycles on the street has also contributed to frequent traffic violations, the officer noted, but added that the root cause is still often insufficient awareness of traffic safety on the part of non-motorized vehicles' drivers.

The broadcast detailed 67 cases of traffic violations during its one-hour time slot.

The officer added that he hoped the online broadcast would both help to spread information about traffic laws and also deter people from violating them in the future.
