More Traffic Supervisors added to Help Enforce New Parking Regulations
The city’s first thousand traffic safety supervisors, a part of the new ancillary force that wears the same uniforms to those of traffic police officer and rides electric bicycles in patrolling local roads to check for illegally parked cars have joined traffic police in issuing tickets to drivers that are caught illegally parking their cars.
These traffic safety supervisors now have the right to issue fines but have no right to handle traffic accidents and other offenses. These supervisors must first pass a training course and will start patroling roads in designated strict ares wherein the parking laws are being actively enforced during rush hours. These strict areas borders Bao’an in the east, Xinzhou Road in the west, Shenzhen River in the south and Beuhuan Boulevard in the north.
Around thirty five supervisors are assigned to the Yuanling area in Futian to join traffic police in working in the areas to increase the enforcement power as there are only 13 traffic police officers patrolling the area. As of yesterday, local traffic police officers started giving out fines between 200 to 2,000 yuan to drivers that were caught parking illegally. The fine is decided on how serious the illegally parked car is affecting traffic.
