Hong Kong Police warn motorists of
April crackdown on poor driving
Hong Kong Police have warned motorists there will be a territory-wide crackdown on inattentive driving in April, involving "every uniformed officer" in the city.
During the operation, stringent enforcement action will be taken against careless driving, speeding, disobeying traffic signals, drink or drug driving and using handheld telecommunication equipment whilst driving, with a view to raising drivers’ awareness of road safety.
Police figures showed that there were 5,735 casualties involving driving inattentively in 2017, of which 608 people sustained serious injury and 50 people died. This accounted for 29 per cent of the total traffic casualties.
The Hong Kong Police force is a member of Road Safety Support.
