Congestion in crowded urban areas and key national roads remained a big problem threatening traffic order and safety, especially in big cities due to there has been no regulation stipulating the leaders’ responsibility and traffic police who are in duty to keep traffic safety. Moreover, some traffic police officers committed corruption to tolerate violations.
