Ban of Electric Bikes Still in Effect

Ban of electric bikes still in effect until new regulations are approvedSince the new rules on electric bicycles took effect last week, no violators were fined or reported on whether there were actions done to do checks on the electric bicycles roaming in the city. Traffic police had a six month restriction on the use of electric bicycles and they were supposed to control their use in restricted areas. The rule stated that no electric bicycles were allowed on the roads in Futian, Yantian, Luohu, Nanshan or Bao’an  as well as most subdistricts in Longgang.

Offenders caught were to be fined 200 yuan, if they refused to pay the fine they would have their electric bicycles confiscated by the traffic police. Although a draft was made to regulate the ban on the electric bicycles, it still needs the approval of lawmakers. While the regulation is still in deliberation this will not affect any actions done by the police to control e-bike use on roads especially imposing fines and catching violators.

  1. Many other countries have lots of bikes (motor and electric) without any major issues. Education (and registration) of the bike riders and drivers of cars/trucks seems to be the real issue. Several bikes would fit where one car fits (on the road or parking) with less pollution. Why don’t they review these countries (including Macau) and see what works for China?

  2. I’ve been using my E-bike the last few days with no issues – fyi!
