Drivers clash with police over entrapment cases

MORE than 100 drivers clashed with police at a traffic enforcement agency in Pudong yesterday, after it was revealed that the agency used entrapment to charge a driver with operating an illegal cab, a central Wuhan-based newspaper reported today.

The conflict happened when the drivers demanded to meet leaders of the traffic enforcement agency for the return of their vehicles or fines, according to the Wuhan Evening News report.

Dozens of police and security guards tried to control the situation.

Yin Hao, one of the drivers, smashed the window of the guards' room with his fist after a traffic enforcement member kicked him and hid inside the guards' room. Yin ended up with bruises on his right arm and hand.

He said was trapped by two bounty hunters working for the agency in June and ordered to pay a fine of 10,000 yuan (US$1,464). His mother paid 1,000 yuan to a middleman and got his car released the same day, Yin said.

Police promised the drivers that their leaders would answer their demands but none of the leaders showed up till 6pm yesterday.
