China has unveiled measures to guarantee safe and smooth transport during the upcoming travel rush for the Chinese Lunar New Year.
BEIJING, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Public Security on Wednesday unveiled measures to guarantee safe and smooth transport during the upcoming travel rush for the Spring Festival, or the Chinese Lunar New Year.
The ministry has asked police departments across the country to clear hazards of law violations by strictly controlling high-risk vehicles, as well as dealing with speeding, overloading and driving under fatigue.
The ministry will ban vehicles that do not meet safety specifications or drivers who have lost all 12 demerit points of their license from going on road during the period.
To ensure smooth traffic, police departments will pay more attention to high-risk road sections that are steep or with sharp turns and fog-prone.
The ministry will also join hands with other departments to ease traffic congestions. ■
