"...sparring with PNP" - not "parring".

I have noticed that error of his too, but I choose to let it go as I understand what he means.  I am not here to correct spelling errors!

A 200 kuai fine for a repeat offender chased through busy city streets, and you call that 'stiff'' ...

Do you understand "LAWS" ? Any law ?
Let me give you an example of Dubai / UAE:
"What does the law say about unmarried couples living together?
Unmarried couples are not allowed to live together under one roof, and punishment for this act can reach a one-year sentence in jail if all sides were consenting.
If one side was forced, the punishment can reach the death sentence, especially if the victim was under 14 years of age."

I only dealt with ".......Are a Big Joke " pointing out that "they are not". ( Whether they are implemented or not, was not the subject of discussion ). Post # 30 is relevant.
Now "Road Traffic Safety Law of the People's Republic of China" Article 99 says " Any person who commits one of the following acts shall be fined not less than 200 yuan but not more than 2,000 yuan by the traffic control department of the public security organ:..........." ( and there is a long list.........)

I suggest you spend sometime, read the document being referred to and may be you will be willing to re-visit your "opinion" on your OP statement i.e.
"China's Traffic Violation Penalties Are A  Big Joke!"

Again, I wonder if you can read English?

I never said anyone paid 200 kuai and that that was a  ...


I have asked the question besides English what other language he considers himself to be proficient in. I did not get any answer. I wanted to start writing in "that" language so that it is "understood".

I still maintain they are a big joke, how often do they apply the 2000 yuan fine to serious offenders? I agree the law is there but in practice they dont apply it seriously.  I said, penalties applied are a big joke, despite the law.
The law also says smokers be fined 50 to 500 yuan, how often are tickets issued for even 50 yuan?  And I often see signs at roadside saying illegal parking fine from 200 to 2000 yuan, again, never seen a 2000 yuan fine issued! Please dont confuse the law with actual penalties meted out!  The unique thing about China is that the law says something but the law enforcer says something else. That is what I meant by 'a big joke'!  That's law enforcement with Chinese characteristics

Copy code
It is NOT unique - and it is NOT only in/about CHINA.
Q: What other countries have you ever lived in ?  ( may not be answered since it is "too personal" )
