Sanya launches specialized campaign to regulate e-bikes & motorcycles
Sanya’s authorities have launched a specialized campaign to manage e-bikes & motorcycles in the city starting this month, September.
The crackdown is expected to last four months, during which time traffic police will be on the lookout for e-bikes without license plates as well as discarded motorbikes.
According to the new regulation, e-bikes exceeding the allowed weight limit and speed will be categorized as motorcycles, which are only allowed to be operated on public roads after the cyclists obtain a license, license plate and insurance.
The surge in the number of e-bikes over the past years has posed a threat to the city’s smooth traffic flow. As of this July, 1,109 e-bikes were involved in 20% of all the traffic accidents in the city.
