Unlicensed haulage a threat to safety

LOCAL political advisory body is appealing to the government to intensify supervision and to crack down on the illegal and unauthorized carriage of dangerous goods, in the city, to regulate the industry and confront the safety hazards the practice raises.

There were a number of unauthorized trucks carrying dangerous goods across the city for which they charged very low prices.

This seriously threatens the safety of road-users and harmed the business of legal transport companies in the city, said members of the Shanghai Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

With no registration or -authorization, the illegal trucks, which usually have license plates from other provinces, can't be monitored by the Shanghai transport and ports administration bureaus or the supervision department.

The committee has also appealed to the National People's Congress to propose more comprehensive legislation to crack down on the unauthorized transport firms to make a safer -market and a safer city.
