China: Traffic cameras focus on drivers with revoked licenses



Traffic cameras focus on drivers with revoked licenses

Shanghai’s traffic cameras can now automatically detect people who drive with revoked licenses.

The cameras can also spot cars and taxis with fake plates, as well as drivers with serious traffic offenses.

When a suspicious car is detected by the camera, the system will notify nearby police officers.

A motorist surnamed Jiang, whose license was revoked in February 2015 due to drunk driving, was one of the first to be detected by the cameras.

For the offense of driving a motor vehicle with his license revoked, Jiang will be detained for seven days with a 1,500-yuan (US$224) fine, police said.
