Police to watch from the sky

POLICE in Shanghai are to trial the use of helicopters to help direct road traffic during rush hours, the latest move by the city to relieve its notorious traffic gridlocks.

An EC-135 police helicopter will cruise over the city's major thoroughfares on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons, videotaping road conditions and broadcasting warnings to drivers violating traffic rules, the Shanghai Bureau of Public Security said yesterday. The use of helicopters, which are fast and command views over a wide area, could assist ground controllers to better handle accidents and clear traffic jams.
