Shenzhen Cyclists Slam Police Over 50 Yuan Traffic Fines
(Guangzhou) — Cyclists in China’s southern tech hub of Shenzhen are up in arms against the police for levying a 50 yuan fine for cycling on lanes reserved for motorists.
Many who commute to work or take short trips on bicycles say the city does not have adequate cycling lanes, forcing them onto roads choked with traffic.
Police started levying the fine on Feb. 9. “Why do you want to ride on roads designated for motor vehicles, while a bicycle lane is just nearby?” police asked on their official microblog announcing the crackdown.
