50 traffic tickets, but cops can't find him

CITY police are hunting for a driver with a bad driving record who has not had the vehicle license checked for almost four years, an offense that would make the car illegal.

The driver has failed to pay more than 50 traffic tickets since 2006. In addition, he was involved in a drunk driving incident in 2007, police said.

"It is a serious offense if the driver did not pay the fine on purpose," said a traffic police officer.

Police have found the car's registered owner, who says he sold the vehicle to a man surnamed Dai in 2006.

The first owner said Dai simply drove the car away after giving only a down payment.

The owner said he had been looking for Dai, and the rest of his money, for years.

Dai failed to register his name for the car.

Nor did he have his license checked by local vehicle management authorities, police said.

Dai and his reckless record were exposed when a dog in the car's back seat leaned through the open window and bit a pedestrian in Putuo District about 6:55pm on October 2.

The pedestrian, a Canadian, was injured on the right elbow and reported the incident to Putuo District police after the car fled the scene.

A colleague of the foreigner, surnamed Wang, wrote down the car plate number.

If the driver is caught, the vehicle will be confiscated for license verification while he is asked to pay the previous fines as well as other penalties, said traffic police.
