Road restriction enforced on nonlocal cars

SHENZHEN’S traffic police caught 16,221 nonlocal vehicles on the road illegally during the morning rush hour Friday, the first day the city implemented a rule to restrict nonlocal vehicles citywide.

Nearly half of the vehicles were registered with plates from Dongguan and Huizhou, while most of the violations were reported in Longgang and Bao’an districts.

According to the latest rule, nonlocal vehicles are banned on Shenzhen roads during morning and evening rush hours, except for roads to the sea ports and the airport. Police will impose a fine of 300 yuan (US$48.39) and add three penalty points to a driver’s license for the third violation.

Statistics show that around 601,700 nonlocal vehicles run on Shenzhen roads every day, accounting for 36 percent of the total vehicles on roads.

Shenzhen police have installed 351 sets of automatic plate-recognition cameras to capture violations by nonlocal vehicles.

On the first day, three road sections on 107 National Highway, the Niantian North Footbridge section in Fuyong, Tangxichong Footbridge section (both directions), reported the most violations.

Among the violations, Dongguan and Huizhou vehicles made up 48.4 percent. Among the non-Guangdong vehicles, Hunan and Jiangxi vehicles made up 4.1 percent and 2.6 percent of the violations, respectively.

“In two hours, police officers intercepted 20 nonlocal vehicles at an intersection,” Wu Rongwu, a police officer with the Longhua unit, said. On major roads or at major intersections, such as Meilin Checkpoint, there should be more vehicles violating such a rule.

The rule only exempts non-Shenzhen vehicles on certain designated roads leading to the checkpoints in Nanshan, Futian, Luohu and Yantian districts from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

The regulation is designed to relieve Shenzhen’s traffic congestion during weekday rush hours. It doesn’t apply during weekends or public holidays.

Emergency vehicles, such as fire engines, military vehicles and police cars, as well as vehicles with dual license plates for Hong Kong and Macao or consular license plates, are not subject to the limitation.

Heavy vehicles, such as buses and trucks, are not subject to the limitation either.

A driver can only be fined once a day and can, for emergency purposes, apply for the right to drive during rush hours once a month.
