China tightens road safety checks

2 April 2014
The Ministry of Public Security has pledged to crack down on traffic violations across the country following a number of road accidents in March. The campaign will include the targeting of drink-driving and speeding, the ministry said.

Police will also tighten checks on accident-prone vehicles such as coaches, school buses and vehicles loaded with dangerous chemicals, and crack down on refitted vehicles.

On 1 March, two tankers loaded with methanol, a poisonous and flammable liquid often used as a fuel, collided in a highway tunnel in north China’s Shanxi province. The crash and subsequent explosion killed 31 people, and nine others are missing.

Later that month, 15 people died and 56 others were injured in a pile-up on an expressway in Chongqing municipality.
