  2. Diesel trucks carrying coal in certain regions must install emissions detectors

    Recently, many regions in China have added policies in efforts to curb pollution.  This was triggered by a major piece of legislation passed in February this year by the Ministry of Environmental Protection (in conjunction with the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Finance, the National Energy Administration, as well as Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shanxi, Shandong, and Henan) titled the "2017 Scheme of Air Pollution Prevention And Control in Beijing, Tianjin and Surrounding Areas”. Diesel trucks traveling in these 28 cities must install equipment to measure exhaust gas.  This should will substantially reduce air pollution caused by diesel vehicles, particularly those that transport coal over long distances.
     

  3. Diesel trucks carrying coal to/from ports will face further restrictions

    Shandong Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government has issued its "2017 Scheme of Comprehensive Treatment of Outstanding Environmental Problems".  This will ban the use of diesel vehicles in transporting coal to/from ports. Shandong is the third region to issue such a ban following Tianjin Municipality and Hebei Province.
     

  4. Hubei to use 3rd party platforms to monitor and improve road safety

    Five parties, including Hubei Provincial Transportation and Logistics Bureau and Shanghai Asia Insurance Brokers Co., Ltd., have jointly signed the "Hubei Province Construction Framework Agreement of Third-Party Monitoring Platforms for Road Transport Safety".  This marks the beginning of the use of third-party platforms to monitoring road transport safety in Hubei.
     

  5. Shenzhen authorizes the use of cameras at toll stations to detect and penalize excessive speeding

    Shenzhen Transport Administrative Law Enforcement Detachment revealed on July 19th that in order to further enhance the efficiency of law enforcement and ensure highway and bridge safety, beginning July 20, remote law enforcement at Shenzhen highway toll stations will be enabled for remote law enforcement.  This means that speeding tickets can be issued without the presence of a law enforcement official, based on camera technology coupled with Big Data.
