Bureau to Change Restrictions on Vehicle Use During Universiade

Bureau to change restrictions on vehicle use during Universiade gamesShenzhen Party chief Wang Rong, told the media that  It was an innovative social management move to ask motorists to reduce or even to stop driving their vehicles during the Universiade rather than just imposing restrictions.

The traffic bureau said that they would not be instituting the previous plans of restricting vehicles on the road by imposing an odd and even number scheme. It has been a common practice in many host cities of such large sporting events to limit vehicles on their roads by imposing the scheme, but the bureau decided to heed the advice of residents and some non government organizations to just ask residents to voluntarily limit their driving.

In such a modern society, non government organizations should encourage residents to participate in urban management since this is a much more efficient, rational and democratic role. Imposing restrictions dampens resident’s sense of initiative and causes inconvenience to others.

Public servants have already led low carbon commuting by arranging bus services for the staff of several city government departments.
