Police to Enforce Fireworks Ban During the Spring Festival

Police to Enforce Fireworks Ban During the Spring FestivalShenzhen police are firm on their decision on banning fireworks and punishing those illegally transporting or selling fireworks, around the city. Police will be setting up checkpoints to inspect vehicles even those plying private roads to see if they are carrying any fireworks.

Based on the rules, any organizations or individuals that transport, sell, store or set off fireworks illegally will be detained up to 15 days and will be fined 2,000 yuan. There is also the possibility that they might face criminal charges if the fireworks that they set off causes fire, damages, explosions or injuries. Those involved in the business in transporting fireworks illegally will be subjected to a 10,000 to 50,000 yuan fine.

Despite popular demand the police said that they are unlikely to designate an area for residents for setting off fireworks as this would still be in violation of the ban. Residents are supporting the ban stating that it will be good for the city and will keep the air clean as fireworks can cause heavy pollutions. Last year’s Spring Festival there were reports of four firework related accidents that cause damages and property loss of 5,000 yuan
