1ST WEE HOUR ACTION CHECKS 314 TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS

SHENZHEN traffic police launched a Wee Hour Action yesterday to check traffic violations during the early morning hours, when accidents could easily result in fatalities and injuries.

In the action between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m., police set up 10 inspection stations on 10 road sections, including Beihuan Boulevard, Nanhai Boulevard, National Highway 107, Longgang Boulevard and Xinqu Boulevard, to check violations such as speeding, overloaded trucks, fatigued truck drivers, overloaded long-distance buses, inappropriate use of full-beam headlights and DUIs.

In two hours, police caught 50 drivers driving under the influence of alcohol, including 16 drunken drivers, 47 violations involving the use of full-beam headlights and 217 violations involving the illegal use of motorist lanes.

At the inspection spot on Minsheng Boulevard in Guangming New Area, a driver surnamed Liu was caught on suspicion of reckless driving.

Liu pretended not to see the police’s signal and attempted to drive into another lane before he was intercepted. A breath test showed his blood alcohol content had reached 147 mg per 100 ml. In the blood test at hospital, Liu used another person’s name to cheat the officers.

The blood test showed Liu’s alcohol level had reached 140.03 mg per 100 ml, exceeding the legal standard for drunken driving.

“The action will be launched once a week at the city level and at least twice a week at the district level,” Xue Weipeng, deputy section chief of the Shenzhen Traffic Police Command Department, said at a news conference yesterday.

During each action, which will generally last for about two hours between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m., law enforcement officers will choose one trunk road in their respective district or new area to check violations.

Fatigued night driving, the mixture of vehicle and pedestrian flows, and secondary accidents are three major factors that can easily cause fatalities and injuries in accidents.

Statistics from police showed a total of 110 people were killed in 107 accidents on 10 dangerous roads in the city in 2016.

Among the accidents, 19 occurred at night.

Fatigued driving and poor visibility could lead to accidents in the wee hours.

Of the 19 accidents, five involved pedestrians or non-motorized vehicles illegally using motorist lanes.
