Electric Bicycles Banned in Guangzhou from Today
Latest Updated by 2006-11-17 11:24:53

Effective today, electric bicycles are completely banned in Guangzhou. Yesterday afternoon, the Guangzhou Municipal Public Security Bureau (GMPSB) held a press conference, announcing that electric bicycles and other non-motorized vehicles equipped with power devices would not be registered and would be barred from the road from today.

GMPSB said that the decision had been made according to the Law of the People's Republic of China on Roadway Traffic Safety and the Regulations of Guangzhou Province on Traffic Safety, and approved by the Guangdong Provincial Government. Effective today, electric bicycles and other non-motorized vehicles equipped with power devices in areas under Guangzhou's administration will not be registered or allowed to travel on the road. People who fail to comply with the ban will be prosecuted by the traffic administration department of the public security bureau.

According to Liu Jingjun, head of Guangzhou's Traffic Police Squad, from today, traffic police will enforce the ban, but, considering that people need some time to adjust to the new regulation, from November 15 to 30, people who violate the ban will given a verbal warning without a fine.

Electric bicycles on the road have long been a controversial issue. In June, as instructed by the Municipal Government, GMPSB held three conferences with related parties about electric bicycle administration. Guangzhou police also hired the Guangzhou Socio-economic Survey Team to conduct a public opinion poll, and the results showed that the majority of local citizens supported a ban on electric bicycles.

Based on the poll results, the Guangzhou Municipal Government submitted a ban proposal to the Guangdong Provincial Government. The proposal was approved in late September.
