Cops cracking down on Illegal truck decorations

Date Posted: 2005-01-27

Truck drivers have always liked fancy curtains in their cabs.

Police call those decorations a safety hazard, and are vowing to crack down against them in compliance with a new prohibition effective this month. Officials say the colorful curtains, which an cost drivers ¥20,000~50,000 to purchase and install, are an impediment to vision. The silver, golden violet or even louder curtains are popular with heavy truck drivers.

The curtains must go, say police. Immediately. The fine for non-compliance is ¥9,000 per infraction, plus loss of one point on traffic driving records. Some drivers expressed surprise at the new law, calling it unnecessary and even silly.

People outside the trucks are pleased by the new law. A construction site ground guide is happy, because “I’m doing the job but many times the truck drivers didn’t see me and tried to run over me. I was so frightened.”

Another worker called the curtains dangerous, and compared them to bald tires on trucks. “These decorations aren’t cheap, but they’ve got to go in the interest of safety,” he said.
